The Coconino County Sheriff's Office has received several concerns from citizens reporting an apparent phone scam with the caller identified as “Captain Smith” of the Coconino County Sheriff's Office. The Sheriff’s Office does not employee a “Captain Smith”.
The scammer poses as local law enforcement, contacting the victims and accusing them of failing to appear for jury duty, stating a warrant for their arrest will be issued until the fine is paid. CCSO will never call to solicit funds or collect fines over the phone. Jury summonses are sent through the mail and communication through any other medium should be considered suspicious.
Anyone receiving such a call should contact the Coconino County Sheriff’s Office or their local law enforcement.
