The AARP is issuing a warning about an apparent phone scam in Maine in which callers are fraudulently identifying themselves as AARP representatives.

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) _ The AARP said the Lincoln County Sheriff's Department has been contacted by residents saying callers are asking for personal information including a phone number, address and banking information in order to send them their new AARP cards.

The AARP said it doesn't ask for personal banking information from its members, and urges residents to be aware of the scam.
