The Polk County sheriff’s department says someone is running a telephone scam using their name.

Officials say someone is calling residents and telling them to settle an outstanding debt by sending them a prepaid money-card.

The calls are coming from a 515 area code.

If you receive a suspicious collection call, hang up and call the police to report it.
