Advisory

********Notice of Phone Scam*******

DATE/TIME: October 8, 2015

INCIDENT: Notice of Phone Scam

LOCATION: County of Monterey

VICTIM(S): N/A
SUSPECT(S): N/A

SUMMARY:

Since October 6, 2015, the Monterey County Sheriff’ Office has taken several reports involving a subject identifying himself as an employee of the Monterey County Sheriff’ Office, using various names, but most recently using that of Sergeant Henry FARLEY. During these telephone calls the subject advises those he is calling that they have outstanding warrants and that they can avoid being arrested if they will pay him a cash payout on bail. The Sheriff’ Office does not have a Sergeant FARLEY and does not conduct business is such a manner. This operation is a scam and we are asking all who receive such calls to notify either their local police department or contact the Monterey County Sheriff’ Department, (831) 755-3722.
