We have been recently notified that there are scammer calls occurring again! A scammer claiming to be associated with Arlington PD and Folsom County Sheriff's Office in California is calling folks demanding money because they "failed to show for jury duty" or "have active warrants." The victims are instructed to purchase gift cards for Google Play, Visa, or other merchants and call the suspect back to pay the "money owed."
In today's case, our victim DID NOT fall for the scam and called us directly to make a report.
No law enforcement or court personnel will EVER call you to demand money over the phone. Please share this message with your loved ones, neighbors and community members. It is often our most vulnerable community members who fall victim to these crimes. Please help spread the word!
