Sulphur Springs Police Department Warns Residents of Phone Scams

From Sulphur Springs Police Department:

Sulphur Springs has recently had an influx of telephone scams. In the last few days, we have seen people getting phone calls from a local Law Enforcement entity, except, it’s not actually the Police.

Technology has advanced enough for these thieves to make any number they want show on your caller ID. The thieves then impersonate Law Enforcement and tell you that you have a warrant (usually for missing a jury summons years ago) and if you don’t pay immediately, you will be taken to jail. Often times, these scammers will want information about your bank account, or will want you to pay them by a pre-paid card.

Do not believe these thieves. If you have a warrant for your arrest, we will either send you a courtesy letter in the mail, or will knock on your front door. Stay safe out there!
