TAYLOR COUNTY, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) – The Taylor County Sheriff’s Office is warning citizens of phone scammers threatening to arrest individuals who don’t pay fines. 

The scammers are “trying impersonate members of our office by telling people that they have missed Jury Duty and either need to pay a fine or face being arrested,” according to a social media post. 

The Taylor County Sheriff’s Office will not call you to tell you owe any kind of fine and threaten to arrest you if you do not pay it.

Real Sheriff’s Office employees will not call citizens to inform them of warrants and the Sheriff’s Office does not accept payments for fines – that is handled through the Taylor County Courthouse or the Abilene Municipal Court.
