The Sebastian Police Department would like our citizens to be aware of a recent scam that has been circulating in our area so that you do not fall victim to it.
Several of our citizens have reported receiving e-mails threatening to arrest the e-mail recipient due to owing money or having committed a crime. The e-mail states that by submitting money you can avoid prosecution. Additionally, the e-mail has, what appears to be an arrest warrant attached. The arrest warrant is fraudulent and meant to scare and intimidate you.
PLEASE DO NOT SEND ANY MONEY OR PROVIDE YOUR BANKING INFORMATION.
A copy of the fraudulent arrest warrant has been made available to you. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the Sebastian Police Department at 589-5233.
