The Bullhead City Police Department is warning the public on a recent phone scam. Several tri-state area residents have reported receiving very threatening phone calls from a man claiming to be from the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office.
The man threatens people that they have a warrant and gives instructions on what to do. He is reportedly very aggressive and offensive. One Bullhead City resident reported that he told her if she didn’t comply, he knew where she lived, would harm her family and burn her house down.
The Police Department reminds citizens to always be suspicious of calls, emails or mail containing threats, advising they owe money or have won a prize. NEVER give out personal or bank account information or send money via any method unless YOU initiated the contact with the person or company.
Simply hang up and call the number you know to be legitimate.
