TROY, Mich. (WXYZ) — Troy police are warning the public about a scam, where people are posing as law enforcement officers from the FBI and the Royal Oak Police Department.

It's a new phone scam, and investigators say the caller ID even shows the actual numbers from these agencies.

The scammers call demanding that you get them gift cards or face going to jail.

If you get one of these calls just hang up, or call your local police department.
