A scammer is calling Muskogee County residents, pretending to be a law enforcement officer, and demanding they pay on outstanding warrants, according to Undersheriff Michael Mahan.

The scammer calls from a number that appears to be the Muskogee Police number (918-683-8000), but is not actually that number. The man claims to be various law enforcement offices, including Mahan, and tells the victims they have outstanding warrants, and because of COVID-19, they can’t take care of the warrants at the courthouse, so they need to pay over the phone.

“He’s really good at it,” Mahan said. “One person he had even done the research and cited a case she was being called as a witness on.”

Mahan said police will never demand money over the phone, and if this man calls you, just hang up.
