PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT- PHONE SCAM

TARGETING REGISTERED SEX OFFENDERS

March 16, 2018

El Paso, TX – The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office is advising citizens of El Paso County of a telephone scam targeting registered sex offenders in El Paso County.

                       Registered individuals around El Paso County have received phone calls from individuals identifying themselves as employees of the Sheriff’s Office.

            The scammers/offenders inform the registered sex offender they are non-compliant and have warrants which will result in an arrest if they fail to pay a specific fine. The VICTIM is told to buy Money Trax cards or gift cards for varying amounts to resolve their noncompliance. After the VICTIM purchases the money cards, the scammer requests the serial numbers displayed on the money cards so that the warrant can be dismissed. Those numbers are then turned into cash by the scammer depriving the victim of the money.

The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office or the Texas Department of Public Safety will NEVER contact registered sex offenders to pay fines or fees via this method.

If anyone has been a victim of these scams, please contact the proper authorities. The El Paso Police Department non-emergency number is 915-832-4400 and the Sheriff’s Office non-emergency number is 915-832-4408. Individuals who report to the Sheriff’s Office Sex Offenders Unit can call 915-538-2008 to verify if they are compliant.

El Paso, TX – The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office, in collaboration with the Texas Department of Transportation under the 2018 STEP Comprehensive Grant and the 2018 Impaired Driving Mobilization grant, will be putting out additional Deputies as part of enhanced Driving While Intoxicated patrols.

The enhanced patrol operations will be taking place during the month of March in response to increased activity during “Spring Break”.

The Sheriff’s Office would like to remind the public that El Paso County is a “No Refusal” county. If a driver is arrested for Driving While Intoxicated and he/she refuses to submit a sample of their breath for analysis, a search warrant will be obtained and a sample of their blood will be taken. That sample will then be submitted for analysis to determine blood alcohol concentration. Either way, the driver will be booked into the El Paso County Detention Facility.

“El Paso County Sheriff Richard Wiles wants to reiterate this reality by reminding College and High School students that Law Enforcement will be out looking for Drunk Drivers. Be smart and use a designated driver, NEVER get behind the wheel after consuming alcohol.”
