[ARCHIVED] JCC Police warn of new scam

Scam alert logo

James City County Police Department has received multiple calls from citizens reporting calls from someone claiming they are an officer with James City County Police Department, Williamsburg-James City County Sheriff’s Office or another local law enforcement department advising that there is a warrant for their arrest for failing to appear in court. These citizens were further told that if they did not pay a fine via a pre-paid card immediately, they would be arrested.

Officers will not call you on the phone and request payment in lieu of arrest. If you receive a call like this or another call that you’re unsure of, please contact police at 757-253-1800. Police also recommend that you make family and friends aware of this scam so that they will not fall victim.

Media contact: Stephanie Williams; 757-592-5618
