A: First, be mindful that there are a lot of telephone scams going around claiming to be from law enforcement, and ultimately demanding money or personal information. If the person left a name and a phone number, contact the police department to see if it's legit. If it is, tell them you'll have your attorney reach out to them. Then contact a local attorney as soon as you can. DO NOT talk with a detective without an attorney.
