LA OFICINA DEL SHERIFF DEL CONDADO DE EL PASO ADVIERTE SOBRE POSIBLES ESTAFADORES


EL PASO, TEXAS – El 12 de mayo, una mujer angustiada buscó ayuda en el vestíbulo de una instalación del condado expresando su preocupación por una orden judicial. Compartió una inquietante llamada telefónica que recibió de una persona que decía trabajar para el Departamento del Sheriff del Condado de El Paso y exigía un pago de $10,000 para evitar una orden judicial. La policía determinó que esta llamada telefónica era una estafa.
La Oficina del Sheriff del Condado de El Paso quiere alertar a los residentes del área sobre las estafas telefónicas en curso en las que los sospechosos se hacen pasar por miembros de las fuerzas del orden para coaccionar a las víctimas para que les den dinero. Este tipo de estafa ha ocurrido en todo el país.
Las estafas tienen variaciones, pero generalmente la persona que llama se identificará como un oficial de la ley y le dirá a la víctima, falsamente, que se ha emitido una orden de arresto porque no se presentó a una cita en la corte, no se presentó al servicio de jurado, tiene una multa vencida o algo similar, y será arrestada a menos que pague de inmediato.
Las personas que llaman a menudo usan los nombres de agentes reales o oficiales de policía, y pueden disfrazar su número de teléfono para que parezca que están llamando desde una agencia local de aplicación de la ley. Esta práctica de disfrazar el identificador de llamadas se conoce como "suplantación de identidad".
Las personas que llaman intimidan a las víctimas exigiéndoles un pago y amenazándolas con arrestarlas si no cooperan. Pueden exigir que las multas o tarifas se paguen con dinero, tarjetas de crédito, tarjetas de regalo, aplicaciones de pago o incluso criptomonedas. Pero ninguna agencia legítima de aplicación de la ley en el área llamará a alguien y exigirá dinero.
"La mejor manera de que alguien se proteja de estas estafas es simplemente colgar, "No baje la guardia y no se deje intimidar para proporcionar datos personales o información financiera. Los verdaderos agentes no te van a llamar y amenazarte con arrestarte, así que cuelga".
Cualquier persona que sienta que ha sido víctima de una estafa debe comunicarse con el número de despacho que no es de emergencia: 915-832-4408.
