U.S. Marshals Warn of Scam

Issued March 1, 2017 - Anchorage, Alaska:  The U.S. Marshals Service is warning the public today of a telephone scam involving a fraudulent caller contacting members of the public and alleging they, or their family members, have an active federal arrest warrant and demanding payment of fines.

Recently, there were reported attempts of a fraudulent caller who identified himself as a Deputy United States Marshal. This phony law enforcement officer informed the potential victims that warrants were being issued for them or their family member due to being absent from a federal grand jury they were previously summoned to appear before. The potential victims were then informed they could avoid arrest by paying a fine by electronic fund transfer or cashier’s check. The Marshals Service became aware of the scam after receiving information from several calls from alert citizens.

The U.S. Marshals Service is a federal law enforcement agency and does not seek payment of fines or fees via the telephone for individuals with outstanding arrest warrants.

The U.S. Marshals Service urges individuals not to divulge personal or financial information to unknown callers and highly recommends the public report similar crimes to the FBI or their local police office if they are the victims of fraud.

For internet related fraud, the FBI Internet Crime Complaint Center can be contacted at

America’s Oldest Federal Law Enforcement Agency

Common Frauds, Scams
Updated Post by Mary Kauffman, Editor SitNews

Fake Check Scams could cost you thousands of dollars!! These scams have been around for decades. Be educated, the responsibility is yours.

Shipping Scam: There is no legitimate reason for someone who is wanting to buy something you post in the classifieds to send you more than the item costs and ask you to send money back.

It is so EASY for crooks to create checks that look like real cashier's checks or checks from businesses that even bank employees can be fooled. 

Fake checks are used in a variety of scams, especially SHIPPPING SCAMS.

Scam artists make up elaborate stories to persuade you to deposit a check for more than the item costs, use some of the funds to ship the item and wire back the remainder of the funds to them. 

They don't really want your merchandise, they want your money and will get it by offering overpayments on items you advertise in the classifieds.....

Weeks later the bank informs you that the check was bogus, and the bank deducts the amount that was credited to your account. If there isn't enough to cover it, the bank may be able to take money from other accounts you have with the bank or sue you to recover the funds. 

If you receive a check from an unfamiliar person or business, be skeptical. There is no legitimate reason for someone who is giving you money to ask you to wire money back.
