SANTA FE — New Mexico's top prosecutor is warning residents about fake phone calls that are attempting to solicit money to benefit victims of the wildfire burning near Los Alamos.
Attorney General Gary King says his office and the Red Cross are getting complaints from New Mexicans who are receiving automated calls that ask for financial contributions for fire victims.
The calls are requesting personal information.
Red Cross New Mexico confirms it's not soliciting funds via the automated calls.
King's office says consumers who receive this type of fraudulent call should not share any information that is requested.
