    ATLANTIC BEACH, Fla. - The Atlantic Beach Police Department sent a warning about a new scam.

    The scammer claims to be a loved one who was in a crash and needs money for hospital bills.

    According to the Facebook post, the caller even puts the "loved one" on the phone and says their voice sounds different because of a broken nose.

    In a Facebook comment, Police Chief Michelle Cook said the scammers almost convinced her parents, but they called Cook before doing anything. 


    The Police Department said a few people have reached out and said they received the scam phone call, but so far no one reported falling for it.
