EPHRATA - Ephrata Police say a scam likely targeting minorities living in the area could soon be making the rounds in the region soon.

On Tuesday, Ephrata Interim Police Chief Eric Koch says a scammer posing as an agent with United States Citizenship and Immigration Services threatened to arrest a Latino resident if they didn’t send them $800 in the form of a Money Gram or Gift Card.

Koch says the resident got the call at around 10 a.m.

Koch says the scammer asked for the resident’s address as well.
