A scammer is impersonating a Grays Harbor County Sheriff’s Office lieutenant, trying to get people to pay nonexistent warrants, Grays Harbor County Undersheriff Dave Pimentel said. The scammer appears to be targeting older women.
The calls come in from 360-214-1541, 360-214-1525, and the caller identifies himself as Lt. Johnson with the Grays Harbor County Sheriff’s Office.
“They’re trying to entice elderly people to come pay for fictitious warrants that are out for their arrest, and it’s entirely a scam,” Pimentel said. “It has nothing to do with the Grays Harbor Sheriff’s Office, nor do we have a Lt. Johnson even working at the Sheriff’s Office. It’s basically just a scam to prey on the elderly.”
Do not give any information to the caller, and contact the Sheriff’s Office at 360-249-3711 for more information.
