Authorities want to warn Miami Valley residents about a red light camera scam that tries to dupe people into paying for citations.
People are receiving calls from someone claiming to be in law enforcement collecting credit card payments for red light camera citations.
Dayton police said their officers do not call individuals on the phone to request private credit card information.
Police advise if you receive such a call, don't give out your personal information and call the authorities.
Three separate cases are under investigation in the area - in Harrison Twp., Kettering and Clayton.
Seven communities in the Miami Valley - Springfield, Dayton, Hamilton, New Miami, Middletown, Trotwood and West Carrollton - have automated traffic cameras, which in total raise about $4 million a year for those municipalities.
