The Collin County Sheriff’s Office has received several calls from Citizens stating they are receiving calls from a Deputy who claims to be from “Collin County”. This person is telling them they have warrants for a variety of difference offenses. During the calls, he then begins to give instructions on how they can pay their “BOGUS” fines over the phone using a cashier’s check or credit card.
The Collin County Sheriff’s Office will never ask for payment over the phone.
If you receive this type of call, disconnect and do not give any personal information to the caller.
If you have sent money and you have been involved in this cam, notify your local law enforcement immediately.
These people disguising themselves as members of law enforcement is fraud; the Collin County Sheriff’s Office does not operate in this manner. The Collin County Sheriff’s Office asks that you please share this alert with family and friends.
