Carbon County Sheriff’s Office Press Release
We have had several reports recently that a scammer referring to himself as Deputy Davenport from the Carbon County Sheriff’s Office has been calling local residents and telling them they missed a court date and now have a warrant. The scammer then tries to get the victim to give them bank account or credit card information to pay the fines and clear the warrant.
Our agency does not have an employee by the name of Davenport. We have never and would never contact someone by phone and solicit payment of fines or warrants.
The scammer is calling from a Voice Over IP number, so the number being used can and will change frequently.
If you receive a call from this scammer, please just hang up.
