Ada County Sheriff’s Office Warns of More Scam Calls

 

You have probably heard this before, but authorities are trying to pound this home today…

The Ada County Sheriff’s Office will never call and threaten to arrest you because you missed jury duty — or have a federal arrest warrant — or have an outstanding civil judgment — or owe the IRS money —or anything like that.

Deputies will also never ask you to place funds for payment on a pre-paid credit card to “cancel the arrest warrant” for missing that phony jury duty, or having a phony federal arrest warrant, or some other made-up charge.

Scammers will do that. In fact, they are doing it to Ada County citizens right now.

Anyone who calls you and asks for your money to prevent an arrest is most likely a scammer.

If you have received one of these scam phone calls, contact the Ada County Sheriff’s Office or the Better Business Bureau.

There is no custom code to display.

Worthington BLOG: Who Deserves Due Process?   I don’t know what is going to happen with the Kavenaugh investigation. If the FBI finds he has lied about anything, I personally would not vote to confirm him. On the other hand, if there is no new information, I really don’t see how he won’t be confirmed.…
