[ARCHIVED] Phone Fraud Scam

The Humboldt County District Attorney’s Office has been alerted to a phone fraud scheme against the public. Criminals are making unsolicited telephone calls claiming to be from the Sheriff’s Department. Callers tell those who answer they have unpaid fines, or have missed court appearances, and to call back to arrange payment. Callers have used the names of actual law enforcement officers working for the Sheriff’s Department.

The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Department does not make calls of this nature, nor does the District Attorney’s Office or any other law enforcement agency.

If you receive such a call, or believe you have been defrauded in this manner, please report the incident to your local police department or the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Department (707-445-7251).
