Scare tactics used in scam

The Oregon State Police is warning residents to be aware of a telephone scam where the caller claims to be an OSP trooper seeking money to drop criminal charges, clearing arrest warrants or threats of arrest if demands are not met. 

Reports from some other law enforcement agencies also indicate similar scam tactics. 

According to the OSP, male callers with foreign accents are calling citizens in Oregon identifying themselves as members of the OSP instructing an intended victim to call within a certain period of time and arrange monetary payment to clear an arrest warrant or to cancel a pending court appearance. 

OSP says this is not an activity undertaken by the agency or any other legitimate law enforcement agency or officer. OSP does not call individuals and demand money from citizens under any circumstances. These calls reported to OSP during the past week are consistent with other scams of the same nature that have been reported across the United States. 

The Oregon Judicial Department advises that courts may use an independent collection service to collect unpaid monetary judgments and fines. 

Residents are encouraged to disconnect the call without providing any information and contact their local police department, sheriff’s office or the OSP. 

Intended victims are also encouraged to file a complaint with the Oregon Department of Justice Consumer Protection Office via the Consumer Hotline at 1-877-877-9392 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., or complete an online consumer complaint form at www.doj.state.or.us/consumer/Pages/complaint.aspx.
