The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office continues to receive 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 representative from the Sheriff’s Office claiming that the individual/victim has ignored their  jury duty summons, unpaid tickets, warrants, or court summons.

Additionally, citizens are encouraged NOT to exchange any personal or financial information over the phone.
