St. Tammany Clerk of Court Melissa Henry warns of scam
From St. Tammany Clerk of Court Melissa Henry

The Clerk of Court and the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office recently received reports from multiple individuals who have been contacted by a person claiming to be with the Sheriff’s Office.

This person tells the individual they have a warrant out for his/her arrest and offers him/her the opportunity to pay a fine to “take care” of the warrant with a Green Dot Card or money order.

THIS IS A SCAM! The Clerk of Court’s office and The St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office do not contact individuals to “take care” of warrants and do not collect fines over the phone.

Please share this post to prevent others from becoming victims of this scam.
