UINTA COUNTY — The Uinta County Sheriff’s Office has been notified that residents are receiving calls notifying them that they have warrants for their arrest. The caller then tries to obtain a payment.
According to a recent Facebook post from Uinta County Law Enforcement Services, “the person is identifying themselves as a local officer, using the names of some of our real officers, attempting to get payment for the warrant over the phone.”
“We would like to remind everyone we do not notify of warrants over the phone and never request, demand or receive payment for the warrant over the phone,” the post states.
The sheriff’s office would like to remind residents not to provide any personal or banking information to anyone they don’t personally know over the phone.
