Be Aware of Scam/Fraudulent Activity

Scam impersonating ACSO

Be aware of potential scam/fraudulent activity of impersonation of the Ada County Sheriff’s Office.

  • The caller makes contact with the potential victim and/or leaves a message.
  • When returning the call, there is an actual prerecorded greeting informing caller they have reached the Ada County Sheriff’s Department with transfer option.
  • Whether they call you or you return the call, they identify themselves with rank and name.
  • They inform that there is a warrant being processed with a fine but will reduce the amount if paid immediately.
  • They give direction to purchase gift cards to make the payment and then they will eliminate the warrant process.

Always verify with proper authorities or courts and do not make payments with gift cards.
