    PITTSBURGH - Police are warning people in the Pittsburgh area about police impersonators calling residents and saying, “There is a warrant out for your arrest, and if you don’t pay up, you’ll be arrested."

    Zone 2 police has been popping up on caller IDs, throwing people off.

    Police said a local college student who just came to the United States fell for the scam and wired money Wednesday night.

    “We don’t do business that way.  We do not ask people to send us money.  It is a scam.  We don’t want any more victims out there,” said Cmdr. Eric Holmes.

    Police are working with the FBI to trace where the calls are coming from.

    More than a 100 people got these calls, police said.
