There’s a new scam going around the area that the Haliburton Highlands OPP would like to warn you about.

Officials say fraudsters are using an OPP phone number to make threatening and harassing phone calls to people.

They say these scammers are claiming to be from immigration, and asking for money or you’ll be departed.

Officials say the phone number has a 705 area code.

The OPP says if you receive a call like this report it to the police.
