If you receive a suspicious phone call please contact Yolo County Dispatch at 530-666-8282.
It has been reported by members of the public that there are calls being made from what appears to be the court’s telephone number.
The scam includes telling unsuspecting members of the public that they have a pending case, owe money, or have a family member in jail that needs bail money. The scammer eventually asks for money to be deposited into a specified bank account.
If you receive a telephone call, from someone identifying himself or herself as a Court employee regarding fines for failure to appear, owing money, warrants, or having a family member who needs bail money,
THIS IS A SCAM. DO NOT PROVIDE ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION, OR PAY THEM ANY MONEY.
