Galveston Police are trying to get the word out about individuals posing as City officials attempting to collect money from citizens by telling them they have outstanding municipal warrants.
The suspects are calling residents claming to work for an attorney. The residents are then instructed to send money or they will be arrested.
The suspects are using actual employee names and caller ID spoofing applications to disguise their identity and location.
To confirm the validity of a warrant notification call the Galveston Municipal Court at 409-765-3740 or in person at 601 54th St. Suite 300.
