Friendswood con: Call demanding money to resolve outstanding warrants

Jennifer JamesMay 23, 2019

Scammers recently spoofed the Friendswood Police Department’s phone number and attempted to con money out of area residents, the department warned.

The caller or callers reportedly threatened victims with arrest if they did not resolve outstanding warrants with a payment over the phone, according to a release from the department.

“The Friendswood Police Department does not make calls requesting any money for warrants or for missed court summons,” the press release said. “Do not wire money, purchase gift cards or give your personal information to anyone over the phone.”

Anyone who thinks they may have a Friendswood municipal warrant or a missed appearance can call Friendswood Municipal Court at 281-996-3252, according to the statement.
