Catawba County Jury Duty Telephone Scam

Catawba County Sheriff's Office
Press Release


NEWTON, N.C. - The Catawba County Sheriff’s Office has received several reports from citizens that have received calls from someone identifying themselves as Catawba County Sheriff’s Deputies. The suspect caller states that they missed jury duty and have a warrant out for their arrest.

The suspects identify themselves as Sheriff’s Deputies using actual names of current Deputies, and the numbers even appear as numbers from the Sheriff's Office.

The suspect caller provides the victim’s name, address, and birthdate (information which is all attainable on the internet), and are telling the victims they must send money to avoid being arrested.

There are several apps that make it possible to look like the call is coming from a different number.

This is a Scam. Do not give out ANY personal information or transfer/send money to anyone over the phone. Law Enforcement, the Clerk of Court, the District Attorney, and other Government Agencies WILL NOT ask for personal information or money over the phone.

If you have concerns, please call the Sheriff’s Office at 828-464-5241.
