BEWARE OF JURY SCAM
Don't be a Victim. Always call the Clerk's Office at 706-613-3190 or the Athens-Clarke County Police at 706-546-5900 or the Clarke County Sheriff 706-613-3250 to verify the summons or the warrant.
Scam Alert: Citizens Are Receiving Scam Calls
The Athens-Clarke County Police Department has received two complaints today from concerned citizens who have received suspicious calls.
In one incident, the victim received a call from a male who identified himself as ACCPD Sergeant Parker. He said he had court documents concerning her and needed an email address so he could send them to her. She gave him an address and when she received the documents, it was an arrest warrant signed by a local judge. A short time later the suspect called back and told her to send a certain amount of money on different cards. Once the money was sent, she was instructed to call him or Lieutenant Scarborough and they would “take care of the warrant.”
In the second incident, the victim received a similar call involving jury duty. The victim was directed by "Officer Parker" to secure an amount of money and wire it to them and they would take care of the "warrant."
Citizens should remember:
• Police officers, sheriff’s deputies, and officers of the court do not call and ask for personal or financial information or to inform them they have warrants. There is never an instance where you can send money and have the warrant “taken care of.” Never send any money via wire transfers for requests such as this.
• Scammers will "spoof" telephone numbers so it appears the call is coming from a legitimate organization. “Spoofing” is when scammers use a device that will allow the telephone network to display a number on the recipients’ caller ID display that is not the actual originating station.
Another common scam involves a call that a relative has been arrested and needs money sent to get them out of jail. Sometimes the caller will have a person get on the line and pretend to be the relative. This line usually has a “bad connection” so the potential victim cannot recognize the “relative’s” voice. If this type call is received, hang up and call the relative at their number to verify if they are actually in need of your assistance.
Always remember - never give out personal information (date of birth, bank or credit card information, etc.) over the telephone – especially to strangers. Never let a stranger know you are home alone, when you will be away, or if you have an alarm system.
If you receive a suspicious phone call, hang up and call the Central Communications non-emergency line at (706) 546-5900 to determine if a police officer or sheriff’s deputy has attempted to contact you.
