Carver County Sheriff warns of phone scam

CARVER COUNTY, MN – Carver County Sheriff Jim Olson would like to warn the citizens of Carver County of a telephone scam that is occurring in the metro area. The current scam involves a caller contacting a victim and informing them they have an outstanding arrest warrant for failure to appear for court or jury duty. The call comes from a telephone number that registers as a local number or a government agency, such as the Carver County Sheriff’s Office. This is called “spoofing.” The caller provides details that lead the victim to believe it may be a legitimate call. The information used is obtained through public records or some other means unknown to the victim. The caller informs the victim that the arrest warrant will be resolved if they pay the fine over the telephone. The caller then demands immediate payment or an officer will come and arrest them. The victim is instructed to obtain a pre-paid debit card, such as a green dot card. A short time later, the caller contacts the victim, obtains the card information, and retrieves the money at a different location. The caller may even tell the victim to contact the sheriff’s office and provides a number (which is false and belongs to an accomplice) or may have another caller contact the victim and indicate they are from the alleged agency and that it is a legitimate call. There are numerous variations of this scam; a family member is arrested and needs bail, the Internal Revenue Service and taxes are due and need immediate payment, etc. Sheriff Olson would like to inform everyone that “No representative(s) of the sheriff’s office or other governmental agency would demand money over the telephone or require the use of pre-paid cards by telephone, ever. If bail or fine monies are needed, you would be required to pay in person at the Sheriff’s Office or designated governmental agency.” Lt. David Williams added “if you receive this type of call, do not release any information or follow any instructions, instead contact the sheriff’s office immediately. If possible, try to remember as much detail about the conversation, the caller, and any phone numbers you were given.”

If you need assistance from police, fire or medical personnel call 9-1-1. Anyone with information related to any crime is asked to contact the Carver County Sheriff’s Office at 952-361-1212. After hours call 952-361-1231. To remain anonymous you may leave a message on the tip line at 952-361-1224.
