US Marshals: Crooks Spoofing Law Enforcement Numbers
MCALLEN – U.S. Marshals Service is sending out a warning about imposters using fake phone numbers.
Officials say crooks are spoofing the district attorney’s office’s real number to trick people into giving up their personal information.
The con artists call victims to solicit their information and threaten them with fines or arrest.
Authorities say imposters will sometimes provide a badge number or names of actual officials.
U.S. Marshals say law enforcement officials will never ask for money transfers over the phone.
To report a crooked phone call, contact the Federal Trade Commission.
