"US Federal Government" Arrest Warrant Scam

US Federal Government Arrest Warrant Scam

The "US Federal Government" email below is a fake. The fake email message is being sent by scammers to trick the recipients into sending them money by threatening legal actions. Therefore, recipients of the fake email message which appears as if it came from a so-called ACS Debt Solutions, should delete it and not follow the instructions in it.

It is important that the public takes precautions when asked to send money via money transfer services like Western Union and MoneyGram, or Prepaid Debit Card to pay legal services or the government. This is because scammers use those untraceable money transfer services to collect money from their victims. Money sent via those services are not refundable, once the scammers have collected or used it.

CASE FILE #: HA5 - 3265301

DUE AMOUNT-$1487.77

Respective Debtor,

This is to inform you, that you are going to be legally prosecuted in the Court House within a couple of days. Your S.S.N is put on hold by the US Federal Government, so before the case if filed we would like to notify you about this matter.

It seems apparent that you have chosen to ignore all our efforts to contact you in order to resolve your case. At this point you have made your intentions clear and have left us no choice but to protect our interest in this matter. Now this means a few things for you, if you are under any state probation or payroll we need you to inform your manager/Concerned HR department about what you have done in the past and what would be the consequences once the case has been downloaded and executed in your name.

Now, FTC is pressing charges against you regarding 3 serious allegations:

1. Violation of federal banking regulation act 1983 (C)

2. Collateral check fraud

3. Theft by deception (ACT 21 A)

If we do not hear from you within 24 hours of the date on this letter, we will be compelled to seek legal representation from our company Attorney. We re-serve the right to commence litigation for intent to commit wire fraud under the pretence of refusing to repay a total outstanding amount committed to, by use of the internet. In addition we re-serve the right to seek recovery for the balance due, as well as legal fees and any court cost incurred.


And once you are found guilty in the court house, then you have to breathe entire cost of this lawsuit which totals to $13,428.15, excluding amount you borrow, attorney's fee & the interest charges. You have the right to hire an attorney. If you don't have or can't afford one then the court will appoint one for you.

    It's still going on. I received an email today from Steve Johnson at the same .net address. Phishing and reported it.

  • February 22, 2019 at 6:14 AM by an anonymous user from: Schaumburg, Illinois, United States

    I received an email with the exact same requests and information as the above letter.

    This is actually the second one in 13 months. The “Steve Johnson “ in the letter has been communicating with me which after today I will totally ignore. Thank you for the clarification to this email!
