PSA YCSO Employee Impersonation Scam

Jul 8, 2024 | Scam Alert

YCSO has been receiving phone calls and emails recently from residents of Yavapai County telling us that they were contacted by someone identifying themselves as an employee of the Sheriff’s Office.  Each caller identified at least one of the following phone numbers:

I can assure you that isn’t us.  The Sheriff’s Office will NEVER contact you to discuss obligations (missed jury duty e.g.)  regarding the courts, nor will we ever call you to collect payment (fines) for ANYTHING. We are not a collection agency. Nor will we ever threaten you with arrest.  Nor will we, or any law enforcement agency, call or contact you in any way for a solicitation.

Should anyone receive a similar phone call or email, YCSO recommends that you do not answer the phone if you do not recognize the phone number.  Let it go to voice mail.  And, if the scammer claims to be the Sheriff’s Office, or anyone of authority, go online and look up the real phone number.

Our front desk phone number is 928-771-3260**.  If this phone number shows up on your caller ID, do not answer your phone. It has been spoofed. Our Fraud Department’s phone number is 928-771-3299.  And, as a reminder, do not call the number they give you – always call the actual number to confirm.
