El Paso, TX - The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office has received several calls from El Paso citizens harassed by scammers impersonating Sheriff’s Office employees attempting to monetarily defraud victims. The scammer/offender identifies themselves as a Sgt. Correy Harrison from the Sheriff’s Office claiming that the individual/victim has ignored their jury duty summons, unpaid tickets, warrants, or court summons. The individual/victim is then advised to make a payment to resolve the matter. The Sheriff’s Office would also like to remind citizens that they will never be contacted by phone requesting payment for missed jury duty summons, unpaid tickets, or outstanding criminal warrants. Additionally, citizens are encouraged NOT to exchange any personal or financial information over the phone. The public can call the Sheriff’s Office Warrants Unit to confirm if there is an outstanding warrant in their name by calling 915-546- 2214. For any matters relating to jury duty please contact 915-546-8102.

If anyone has been a victim of these scams, please contact the proper authorities. El Paso Police Department non-emergency number is 915-832-4400 and El Paso County Sheriff’s Office non-emergency 915-832-4408.
