PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT- PHONE SCAMS

February 24, 2020

El Paso, TX – The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office continues to receive calls from El Paso citizens harassed by scammers impersonating Sheriff’s Office employees in an attempt to monetarily defraud their victims.

The scammer/offender identifies themselves as an employee of the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office and then claims that the individual/victim has ignored one of the following: jury duty summons, unpaid tickets, warrants or court summons. The individual/victim is then advised they must either make a payment or report to the Sheriff’s Office Headquarters to resolve the matter.
