Arrest Warrant Scam Makes Its Way Around The Northland

Police from the City of Hibbing are warning residents on the Iron Range about a new arrest warrant scam that is making the rounds in  the region;  The information is also important for Twin Ports residents – with the same potential results.

The scam works like this:  The victim gets a phone call from someone who claims that they have a warrant and they could take care of the matter right away – if they send money.  The criminals are getting your personal data from online loan applications, so the information that they appear to have on you seems legitimate.  Some of the scammers have even gotten defensive when potential victims have failed to believe their story – threatening to “come and arrest them in front of their children and families”.

The public is reminded not to fall for potential scams.  Ask the person on the phone to see the legal documents pertaining to the alleged case;  Call your local police department to confirm or report the suspected scam.
