Authorities warn of scam in Nacogdoches area
Nacogdoches, Texas (KETK) — The Nacogdoches Police Department is warning citizens in the area of a recent telephone scam.
In the con, a caller identifies himself as a lieutenant with a Nacogdoches County or District Court. The person then tells the victim they owe money on a warrant or fine and demands money be paid following their specific instructions.
Nacogdoches law enforcement has asked the public to not give information to the caller and to hang up immediately.
If you believe you may owe money at a court, call the court yourself at a number that you have looked up and not the number a caller has given you.
