Nova Scotia RCMP are warning the public about reports of suspicious phone calls asking for personal and credit card information.
The Mounties say in a release that the caller ID in each case shows "9-1-1" followed by a regular, seven-digit phone number.
If someone tries to call the number back, police say they are connected to emergency services because the number starts with 9-1-1.
Police are asking residents not to call back any unknown numbers starting with 9-1-1 as it will result in accidentally calling emergency services.
They also remind residents not to give out any personal or financial information to callers they don't know.
RCMP say investigations are ongoing.
