MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee Police said robocalls have been calling area residents Friday morning.

The calls were warning people that their credit has been suspended. The message then asks you to press a number and reroutes the call to local 911 centers.

Milwaukee Police Chief Ed Flynn said surrounding counties are also being affected.

Police said that if you recieve a call like this, hang up.
