BEND, OR -- A popular scam is making a resurgence in Central Oregon. Several people have reported receiving calls, recently, from a man claiming to be “Deputy Brian Moore, with the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office.” He asks for money to clear up a warrant issued after missing jury duty. In at least one instance, the caller claims the warrant was signed by the Honorable Judge Jones. There is no Judge Jones in Deschutes County. Some have also been asked to "self-report" to the Sheriff's Office and pay the fine/bail at a kiosk in the lobby.

 

The Sheriff's Office reminds everyone law enforcement does not call and ask for money to clear up a legal matter. If someone has a warrant, law enforcement typically contacts them in person, with proper credentials to identify themselves. DCSO says people have fallen for the scam in the past.


Anyone who receives a similar call should contact non-emergency dispatch at 541-693-6911 and ask to talk with a deputy.
