Montgomery County officials warn of phone fraud demanding money to avoid arrest

Secretary of State warns of misleading business direct mail

“No money is involved if there is a warrant issued for someone’s failure to appear in court,” Steele said. “A failure to appear warrant must be handled in a courtroom in front of a Judge of the Court of Common Pleas. Anyone who has gotten one of these calls should alert Montgomery County Detectives that they received this call.” “Montgomery County residents need to know that arrest warrants are never handled in this manner,” said District Attorney Kevin R. Steele in a statement.

People who have been victimized can call Montgomery County detectives at 610-278-3368. The imposter then says the victim can pay an amount, typically around $1,800, at the Montgomery County Courthouse, but then switches the story and tells the victim they need to purchase a payment card from a pharmacy. If a card is obtained, the fraudster will later ask for the card number and pin.
