Police will never call you and ask for money.

Multiple victims are reporting more scam phone calls about missing jury duty and an arrest warrant being issued for their arrest.

Criminals are calling victim’s workplace stating that an arrest warrant has been issued for missing jury duty.

To make the scam more real, the criminals are changing the phone number “spoofing” the number to make it look like they are calling from the King County Sheriff’s Office.

The police will never call you and request money over the phone, and will never tell you to go to the store and buy gift cards and provide those numbers over the phone.

The criminal caller is often very professional sounding and they use high pressure tactics to make you believe that you will be arrested for even hanging up the phone.

If you ever receive a phone call like this, hang up.

If you have questions about a call being legitimate you can always call 911.
