Bryan Police officers are warning about a scam going around concerning arrest warrants.
They have received several calls from people who say someone is pretending to be a police officer, threatening to arrest them if they do not pay a warrant. The person even used the real name of an officer or supervisor.
Bryan police say this is a scam. The police department never demands payment.
Here are the ways you know it is a scam:
1. Caller will give a sense of urgency, ‘pay now or else’
2. Caller will threaten or coerce you to comply
3. Caller will want you to pay using pre-paid credit cards or gift cards
Bryan Police would like anyone who gets one of these calls to call the department and report what happened.
