Fraud Strikes Hopkins County Yet Again

Smiley face

Phone ScamResidents in Hopkins County are yet again being harassed by scam artists. A Como man filed a complaint to the Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office after he received a phone call from an individual claiming to be a Hopkins County law enforcement officer. The caller claimed to be “Officer Adam Williams,” gave a false badge number, and proceeded to inform the Como man that he needed to pay a fee immediately or an arrest warrant would be filed. According to the complaint report, the phone number showed up as 903-438-4040 and the caller carried a “strong Indian accent.”

Chief Criminal Investigator Lewis Tatum reminds us that the Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office would never call residents demanding payment of any sort and that when arrest warrants are filed law enforcement officials go to the residence to serve the warrant. Tatum urges residents to hang up when called by similar scam artists and to immediately report the phone number and incident to the Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office.
