KENNER, LA (WVUE) -

Kenner Police warn residents of a phone scam involving the City of Kenner. 

Someone is calling residents telling them they have outstanding fines or fees that need to be paid immediately. 

They suspect the scammers are using a spoof app because caller ID shows the calls are originating from the City of Kenner. 

The caller directs the individual to another number in an attempt to get personal information from the victim. 

Chief Michael Glaser warns the calls are a scam. Anyone who receives such a call is asked to contact the clerk of court at 504-468-7277.
