I used to get calls like this and I would tell them come and arrest me, haven’t been arrested yet. DIRECTV puts the name and number on-screen and if it says unavailable, unknown or it is a number I don’t recognize I just don’t answer, if it is important they can leave a message.

APEX, N.C. - (WTVD) -- An Apex Police captain was on the other end of a scam call where a man told her a sheriff's deputy was on the way to arrest her. It was a teachable moment - and social media gold.
During a chat with two men who went by the names of 'John Black' and 'Jason Brown,' Captain Ann Stephens was told she was facing as many as 25 charges in two conversations. The men told her their talk was being monitored by several agencies. The department posted video of the call to its Facebook page, hoping to convince people not to engage when asked for personal information over the phone.
"These are scam calls," Stephens said. "Don't ever give out your information. Don't ever verify their information even if they have it."
The caller asks for Stephens' address and last four digits of her social security number, which the caller claims there were numerous charges filed against.
When asked for her address, Stephens gave the address for the Police department - 205 Saunders Street.
