Citizen Alert - Phone Scam Returns: Individual Impersonating Sheriff's Deputy

The Sheriff's Office received several reports the week of November 17 of an individual attempting to impersonate a Ramsey County deputy sheriff.

Similar to the scam that was occuring in April, 2014, and in other counties previously, November is seeing the return of the Jury Duty Scam.  A person claiming to be Lieutenant Zack Miller informs the caller that they missed jury duty and were now in contempt of court.  Per "Miller", the judge had ordered a fine of two thousand dollars and that it needed to be paid immediately using a Green DOT card.

Citizens should note there are two key indicators that this is a scam. First, Sheriff's offices do not conduct business in this manner. Two, any time a phone solicitor wants to be paid using a Green DOT card the operation is highly likely to be a scam.

In June of 2014, the attempted scam typically involved a phone call from an individual who claims to be a Ramsey County deputy sheriff. The caller, claiming to be Officer Patrick Miller, Badge #2---, informs the citizen that he/she has outstanding tax issues and to avoid arrest needs to report to Washington DC tomorrow or pay the fee today. The caller will then say that if the citizen would pay “the fee”, usually several hundred dollars in the form of a pre-paid card, the matter would be resolved.

The April incidents involved the caller telling the citizen they failed to serve on jury duty, and that a warrant would be issued for their arrest if they didn't pay a fee. The April caller commonly used the name Lieutenant John Roberts, though other names were also used.

Sheriff's Offices in Minnesota, and government agencies in general, do not conduct business in the manner that these phone scams suggest.  Please do not become a victim.

Anyone who has contact with this individual is asked to collect as much information as possible, including any telephone numbers or addresses the individual provides, and to call the Special Investigations Unit of the Ramsey County Sheriff’s Office at 651-266-9383.
