Recently, the Washington State Attorney General's Office issued a warning to the public about scammers posing as being from the Washington State Supreme Court Clerk demanding money and threatening arrest. The scammers seem to be targeting individuals with Hispanic last names.
The scammers use fake caller ID information making it seem like the calls were from the Supreme Court clerk’s office. Callers claimed that they were from the courts or law enforcement. They also threatened arrest if the victim did not send money.
The Attorney General’s Office recommends that if you receive a call like this hang up. Do not given in to high-pressure tactics, threats, or bullying. No one from the Supreme Court will call you to demand payment or threaten arrest.
Also, please let your friends know about this scam, especially if they are Hispanic.
