Phoenix police are warning the public about a rash of false kidnapping and extortion phone calls where an unknown person claims to have kidnapped a family member but, in fact, it is all a scam.

 
Police Lieutenant Paul Taylor says that anyone who gets one of these calls should immediately try contact the family member in quest to ensure their safety and then call police to report the call or the kidnapping, if it turns out to be the real thing.
