Phone Scams Pose as Law Enforcement in Coconino Country

The Coconino County Sheriff’s Office is warning residents of ongoing scams. The office says they have received several calls from citizens reporting phone scams posing as law enforcement. Officials say the scams falsely accuse victims of failing to appear for jury duty, having a federal or local warrant, a civil matter, or owing fines. No law enforcement agency will call to solicit funds or collect fines over the phone; jury summonses are sent through mail. To prevent yourself or your loved ones from falling victim to phone scams, always be suspicious of unsolicited calls, texts, or emails. Be cautious of mimicked telephone numbers and email addresses, and always call the agency directly to verify credibility. Lastly, take your time and trust your instincts; if an unknown caller makes you uncomfortable, hang up. Anyone receiving such a call should contact the Coconino County Sheriff’s Office at 928-774-4523 or their local law enforcement.
