The Drug Enforcement Administration is warning Oklahomans about a scam making rounds.

They said scammers are spoofing real DEA numbers to impersonate real agents, and they say if you don't pay off a fine, you'll be arrested.

"The DEA is not in the business of calling you and telling you you're under investigation, and we're never going to call you and demand money or fines or ask for any of your sensitive personal information," said John P. Scott, DEA in Oklahoma.

Scott said if you get one of these calls, do not give any payment or personal information.
