Scammers are getting better at their craft. According to a post on social media, residents have reported receiving calls from scammers identifying themselves as Border Patrol. They advise the resident that a package in their name containing drugs has gone through the border. The scammers threaten arrest if money isn't sent to them.

No law enforcement agency would call a resident for payment. It's not done.


Don't Fall for it. If you don't recognize a number on your phone, be aware. And remember, NEVER give out personal information to anyone you don't know.

If you receive a phone call from Border Patrol, report it to your local law enforcement office. It's a scam.
