Authorities are warning of con artists posing as debt collectors who dupe their victims into thinking they’ve got unpaid court fines that could lead to their arrests unless settled immediately.
According to the state Attorney General’s Office, the scammers are claiming to represent various courts located across Washington state and demanding that money be wired to them in order to prevent their arrests. Officials believe the scammers are setting their phone ID to make it appear they are calling from official court offices.
The Attorney General’s Office advises that courts never call people to collect debts and that courts discourage people from wiring money.
