State Attorney Catherine Vogel wants to warn the public of a new scam that was reported to the Monroe County State Attorney Office. Someone reporting to be from the Sheriff’s Office contacted a resident threatening them with an outstanding warrant for failure to appear for a Grand Jury session. The caller then told the resident to obtain cash cards to pay a fine or risk immediate arrest. The State Attorney Office wants to caution all residents that if you are ever called and informed that a warrant is out for your arrest and that you must tender a fine in order to avoid such arrest, this is a scam. Luckily the resident contacted our office and avoided being duped out of any funds. If you are ever called by anyone seeking such payment please call the office of the State Attorney Investigations Department or the Monroe Sheriff’s Office or Key West Police Department.
