New Scam Call Appears To Come From Court
Asks For Fine Payment
LEWISTON, ID – There’s a new scam with callers pretending to be court employees. Nez Perce County District Court Clerk Patty Weeks is sending out the warning that the aggressive callers are not part of the court system. The phone number might look like it’s coming from a court phone number, but it’s a spoofing scam.
The caller claims that you have a court fine and it must be paid immediately over the phone.
The County will not call you to demand a payment for a fine. If you owe, you’ll get a written notice.
Weeks says if you get one of these calls, hang up immediately. Do not talk to them and don’t give out any personal info.
