Scam Alert: $2,000 Fine for Moving Without Reporting

[sosen.org 5/9/18]

The following is from one of our member families.

We had a scare yesterday. Someone called saying they were from (our) County Sheriff’s Department and that my loved one had moved without reporting it within three days. They wanted $2,000 dollars to cover his court fees then directed us to a specific street downtown which is where my loved one’s registration office is located. They indicated he would not be arrested, but would have to show up in court next Friday. They kept him on the phone and said he could not hang up while driving. He was very upset and drove to the bank. I went with him and tried to convince him it might be a scam. When we got to the bank I called the County Sheriff’s Department and they said it was NOT true. He then called his PO and was told it is a scam that is going on and he had heard it from others. Her loved one was finally convinced. He suffers from a TBI injury and PTSD from the military which made the panic worse.

Please, if you get any such call wanting you to respond with money hang up and call your registry office or police department and report it immediately. Any such call that you receive via phone or by mail please recognize it for what it is…a scam.

The interesting part is where are the scammers getting the phone numbers for the registered citizens?

Obviously, there has to be an insider working somewhere that access to these records, either in the parole office or Sharper Future. Anybody that works there could easily get this information and pass it on. I was surprised at the type of people Sharper Future would hire to work as receptionists. I’m talking about obviously people who were on drugs, or looked liked they just got out of prison themselves.

Phone numbers are easy to come by from a variety of public sources, even for people who don’t allow their number to be published. Google someone’s name, and often you get phone numbers. Some may no longer be valid, some will be for people with the same or similar name. The scammers will just call them all. They don’t care if they are over-inclusive, so long as at least some of their calls end up going to the intended victims.

This is harassment and yet another reason to take down the registry. The states are enablers of the crimes.
