Advisory Text:

BEWARE OF THIS REOCCURRING PHONE SCAM: An individual -usually a male- calls and identifies themselves as a trooper using various names and ranks. The caller advises people that they, or one of their family members, have active warrants or are out of compliance and they must pay their bail to him or face arrest and possible additional fines. The caller explains they can pay him with prepaid credit cards to take care of the warrants. He may also provide call back numbers which usually go directly to an answering machine if they are called. This scam has taken place in communities all across Alaska. Be aware that the Alaska State Troopers will NOT ask for payment over the phone or offer to negotiate for reduced payment in lieu of arrest. If you are concerned that you may have a warrant for your arrest with the AST, you can look at the active warrants website: You can also look up the phone number for your local law enforcement agency to see if they can verify if a warrant is in existence and obtain information on how to correctly deal with the situation. No law enforcement agency will collect funds during a phone call or ask that payment be made using pre-paid credit cards that are obtained from convenience stores. If you believe you have been a victim of a scam, contact your local law enforcement. For Alaska State Troopers local post contact information visit:
