SCAM – Inmate Bond Increase After Release

Scam targeting jail inmates draws attention in Montezuma County Don’t be a victim:

  • Never wire money to someone you do not know or to someone with an identity you can’t verify.
  • Call the bondsman whose name is being used.
  • A legitimate bail bondsman will not call to solicit money or ask for payment over the phone.
  • Law enforcement agencies will not call you on the phone to inform you of an impending arrest, and they will not solicit money from you over the phone. Hang up, look up the phone number for the law enforcement agency the person calling you says he represents, and call the agency back for verification.
