APD has received calls from several residents of a phone scam in which the caller claims to be with Collin County Sherriff's Office and payment for an outstanding warrant must be made within the hour to avoid arrest. The caller or callers are using keywords like: bench warrant, special considerations, uplift, verification card and proof of receipt.
This is a SCAM: Please do not provide any credit card information or agree to any cash settlements. The amount of fine referenced in these calls varies from the $900 to $1500 range.
Again, this is a SCAM - the Collin County Sherriff's Office does not conduct business in this manner. Do not fall prey to this tactic regardless of how convincing the caller may be.
