Media Release 10/28/14 - Phone Scam

Recently The Big Spring Police Department has received complaints from citizens regarding a phone scam. The complaints are regarding phone calls they are receiving from subjects who claim to be law enforcement officers. They tell the citizen that they have missed a court date and owe fines and attempt to collect those fines over the phone. Neither the Police Department nor the Howard County Sheriffs Office are contacting citizens about fines. If you receive one of these calls listen carefully to the name and agency given. Do not give ANY personal information to the callers. Report the call to the local Police or Sheriffs office immediately.
