Potential Fraud Alert

The Utah Department of Public Safety has become aware of scammers calling from what appears to be a State government number and identifying themselves as BCI Officers. The “officer” then advises the call recipient they have warrants for their arrest and offers to allow them to pay the warrant. THIS IS A SCAM! The Utah Bureau of Criminal Identification does not advise people of warrants by phone and will never request payment of warrant fines.

If you are contacted as a part of this scam you may report it to the Federal Trade Commission at www.ftc.gov and/or to the FBI at www.ic3.gov. If you’ve been a victim of this scam it should be reported to your local law enforcement agency.
