Warrant Scam Re-emerges

The "warrant scam" has re-emerged. Would-be victims have reported that they received a call from a "deputy" about an outstanding warrant. The caller tells victims they must pay to have the warrant "lifted" or they will come to their house and arrest them.

No county employee, including those in law enforcement, will call you to request payment over the phone for anything.  Anyone who does should be reported to the police immediately.

Subsequently, a Sheriff’s Office deputy would never call someone with a warrant to warn them that we were on our way to arrest them.

If you wish to verify that you have an outstanding warrant in Snohomish County, a current list of all outstanding District Court misdemeanor and Superior Court felony warrants is available on-line.

Anyone who believes they may be a victim of fraud should call 911.
