The U.S. Marshals Service says it has received numerous reports of a phone scam involving people claiming to be from the Marshals office.
In these calls, individuals identified themselves as working for the U.S. Marshals Service, and informed the victim there was a warrant for their arrest. The scammer then attempts to gain personal or identifying information from the victim, or to threaten fines or arrest.
People receiving calls such as these are urged not to provide any personal information or provide a payment form of any type.
