BEWARE OF A PHONE SCAM FROM LAW ENFORCEMENT IMPERSONATORS
October 06, 2017

Law Enforcement officials are warning the public about impersonators acting as either U.S. Marshals or local Sheriffs officers telling persons that there are warrants out for their arrests for failure to appear to serve on a Grand Jury.

Persons saying they are employees of the U.S. Marshals and county sheriff`s departments are calling citizens claiming that the answering party failed to appear for federal or local jury duty. The caller then tells the recipient of the call that a warrant has been issued for the individual`s arrest, and that the individual must pay a fine and report to the court. The citizen is later requested to purchase a prepaid debit card, and provide the card information to the caller prior to reporting to court and discovering the fraud.

Citizens are encouraged to verify the information with the appropriate law enforcement agency. Victims of phone or online scams can file a complaint with the FBI`s Internet Crime Complaint Center at www.IC3.gov.

The U.S. Marshals Service is a federal law enforcement agency and does not seek payment of fines or fees via the telephone for individuals with outstanding arrest warrants, the service stated.

The U.S. Marshals Service also warns of another ongoing phone scam where the swindler is claiming to be a U.S. marshal, court officers or law enforcement official looking to seeking to collect a fine in lieu of arrest for failing to report for jury duty.
