N.C. (CNN) — Ann Sephens, Captain of the Apex Police Department received a phone call from a man trying to scam her out of her personal information, what he didn’t realize was who he was talking to.

He claimed she was going to be arrested if she didn’t provide him with her social security number and bank account information.

Stephens used her experience to show how it’s best to deal with phone scammers.

When the man on the phone told Stephens she would be facing charges and that the Sheriff’s Deputy was on the way, she gave him the address for the police department.

The phone conversation was recorded and the video was posted to the Police Department’s Facebook page.

Stephens wants to remind others, “don’t ever give out your information, and don’t verify information even if they have it.”
