AUSTIN (AP) - The Texas Department of Public Safety wants violators to pay their traffic citations but the agency is not making calls about alleged overdue red light tickets.

DPS on Wednesday warned that scammers have been calling people, demanding credit card and Social Security numbers for immediate payments. The agency says the bogus callers say the alleged violator faces arrest unless the personal information is provided.

The Department of Public Safety does not collect traffic fines or oversee red light camera enforcement.

DPS says anyone receiving the fake calls should contact the consumer affairs division of the Texas attorney general’s office.
