Criminals Impersonate Law Enforcement, Threaten Arrest

Criminals impersonating Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office employees are calling county residents, threatening them with arrest over supposed unpaid fines or for missing jury duty. MCSO said the scammers are using real information about MCSO employees—including names and phone numbers—to make themselves sound official. 

The tip-off you’re being scammed: They’ll ask you to buy a gift card or money order, or withdraw cash, to get off the hook. They might even tell you to meet them at MCSO headquarters.

“MCSO will never ask for money over the phone or request to meet you in person to take your money,” the agency stated. “Never provide your personal information to an unknown caller.”
