Tarrant County sheriff warns of fake warrant scam | #phishing | #scams | #cybersecurity | #infosecurity | #hacker



The Tarrant County Sheriff’s Office has issued a warning about a rise in scams involving fake arrest warrants and fines.

According to a press release, scammers are calling residents and telling them they have outstanding arrest warrant or unpaid citations, or that they failed to report to court as a jury member or witness.

The scammers then demand money through Green Dot cards, gift cards, Zelle, Cashapp or account transfers. The sheriff’s office said it does not request money through any of those formats.

Scammers may be calling from numbers that appear legitimate, the sheriff’s office said.

If you think you have been the victim of a scam, you should call your local police department. For those who live in unincorporated Tarrant County, call 817-884-1213.
