Swindlers impersonating Deputies are back with their "Wanted on a Warrant" telephone scam.
SCAM ALERT - The Sheriff's Office received several reports from citizens in June, and again in August, that they had received a telephone call from a 'Ramsey County Deputy' asking for money over the phone to avoid being arrested for an outstanding warrant. If you receive a call asking you to send money to stop a warrant please hang up - the call is not coming from a real Ramsey County Deputy.
Government agencies do not call people and ask for money via the phone or via pre-paid credit card. This scam, or theft by swindle and fraud, has been attempted throughout the country over the past few years by thieves posing as various government agents. The "wanted on a warrant" scam has been attempted in Ramsey County previously.
If you have been a victim of this, or any scam, please call 9-1-1 and report it to your local law enforcement agency.
If you received this scam call, avoided becoming a victim, and have a caller ID number from the suspect, please send that information in an email to AskSheriff@co.ramsey.mn.us.
Active Ramsey County Arrest Warrants can be searched online using the Warrant Search service on this website. Information about warrants and how to resolve them are also available on this website.
