Mexico residents are being warned about scammers targeting professionals.
According to Mexico Public Safety, they’ve been made aware of a person calling professionals that work with the department and the prosecutor’s office claiming to be a detective with “Mexico Police Department”.
The caller tells the person that they have missed a subpoena and now have a warrant for their arrest and that the bond can be paid over the phone.
Mexico Public Safety does not serve warrants this way and bond cannot be paid over the phone.
They caution residents to not give personal or financial information over the phone to avoid being taken advantage of.
If you wonder if Mexico Public Safety is wanting to speak to you, call them at 573-581-2100 or 573-473-5800.
