According to GCSO Lt. Kim Neal, the scammer identifies himself as a member of the Grand County Sheriff’s Office. One name he has used is Mike McAllister. The caller states that as a result of missing jury duty they have been fined a certain amount of money and he asks for the person to purchase prepaid cards and forward the money.
“No law enforcement agency would call in that capacity, nor would any court,” Neal said.
Neal is asking citizens to contact GCSO at 435-259-8115, or the Moab City Police Department at 435-259-8938 if they have received a call of this sort.
