[ARCHIVED] We Will NOT Call & Demand Money for Warrants/Fines - EVER


We Will NOT Call & Demand Money for Warrants/Fines - EVER

The Spokane County Sheriff’s Office continues to receive reports of scammers trying to lie, intimidate, trick, and threaten people into giving up their hard-earned money or personal information, leaving them vulnerable to identity theft.


Law Enforcement, Courts or any other government agency will never call you and demand prepaid credit cards for payment while threatening arrest if you don’t, but scammers will, so don’t be duped.

Theses scammers/criminals continue to call, spewing their scandalous, fictitious lies, threaten people with arrest and spreading fear while trying to trick people into immediately purchasing prepaid credit cards (Green Dot) to avoid going to jail.

The most recent ones come from a person claiming to be “Detective James Parry”.  The scammer states the victim failed to appear for a grand jury summons and now has a felony warrant for their arrest.  The phone number associated with these most recent scams is 509-481-9067.

The scammers demand payment and insist you pay your “fine” immediately.  Through threats and intimidation, they convince victims to travel to the store, purchase Green Dot prepaid credit cards and provide the identification numbers which allows them to drain the money from the cards. 

This is a Scam!!  Don’t LOSE your money.
