Sex Offender Registrants Targeted by Telephone Scam Calls

Would you share this Article with others?

Law enforcement agencies in multiple states have reported cases in which scammers are calling registered sex offenders posing as law enforcement officers and claiming them that they are negligent in their legal requirements in some way or have missed a scheduled court date. The caller may provide a callback number and voicemail that sounds like it belongs to local law enforcement. The caller tells the registered offender that they must purchase gift cards or send payment to the sender to avoid arrest or possible criminal charges.

But, it is important for all residents to know that no police agency will ever solicit any person for any type of payment to avoid arrest or any type of criminal enforcement action. And, all calls requesting payment in the form of gift cards are scams.
