BEWARE of phone call scam from deputy impersonator

Warning to the public: no law enforcement agency will ever call threatening to arrest you if you don’t make an immediate payment for an outstanding warrant, or any other law enforcement matter.

The latest calls show the caller ID number being masked as if it were from the sheriff's department office. It is a scam.

It’s a popular scam practice that resurfaces periodically. The Dallas County Sheriff’s Department is receiving calls from concerned citizens who were contacted by an individual claiming to be a sheriff's deputy. In once instance, the impersonator stated that the caller failed to show up for a grand jury subpoena.

The impersonator demands for the caller to make immediate payment through the purchase of a Green Dot debit card or face arrest. This is a scam.

Never give your personal information over the phone.
