BOSTON — The state treasurer isn't calling you looking for money. 
State Treasurer Deb Goldberg issued a scam warning on Monday cautioning Bay Staters about fraudulent phone calls claiming to be from her office. 
The illegitimate calls claim "you owe money to the Treasury to avoid an arrest for drug possession." 
We're pretty sure you can't pay your way out of a drug possession charge and the Office of the State Treasurer does not call people to collect money. 
In her statement, Goldberg said she and her office want to ensure that no citizen is taken advantage of as part of this scam. If you receive a call like this, contact the Treasurer's office immediately at 1-617-367-6900 to confirm legitimacy.
