A heads-up Bowie County citizen realized before it was too late, thankfully, that someone was trying to scam her this week. Plus, all the usual crimes and investigations in your weekly report from the Bowie County Sheriff's Office prepared by Chief Deputy Robby McCarver.

This report is for the week of September 5 - 11, 2022. If you missed the week before, here you go.

Jury Duty Scam Alert:

This report just in from your Bowie County Sheriff's Office: A Bowie County citizen received a phone call from 903-689-2243 Monday morning from someone purporting to be “Deputy David Biggar.” The Deputy was calling to inform our citizen that she had missed jury duty and he had two citations for “Failure to Appear for Jury Duty” for her. ready for the scam? Here it comes. In lieu of serving the citations, the "Deputy" said that our citizen could get on a Zoom call with Judge Howell and pay $1000.00 per citation. Luckily, the citizen realized something was wrong and sought to validate this information. When she called the BCSO she was able to confirm her suspicion that this was indeed a scam.

The Bowie County Sheriff's Office does actually have an employee named Captain David Biggar. The Captain heads up the Criminal Investigation Division. However, he has not called anyone about missing jury duty. What's more, the Bowie County Sheriff's Office will never ask for payment over a Zoom call or the phone. That request is an immediate sign that you are dealing with a scammer. If someone claims to be an employee of the Bowie County Sheriff’s Office and asks you for money over the phone, hang up on them and call our Office for verification. The phone number the scammer called from appears to be spoofed and is not a valid Bowie County Sheriff’s Office phone number. The phone numbers for the Bowie County Sheriff’s Office are 903-798-3149 and 903-628-6815. Lastly, Judge Howell’s Office does not collect fines or payments for missed jury duty.

Good job citizen, call and confirm, and you should probably be wary of anyone asking you to pay money over the phone.
