Sheriff’s Office Issues Alert On Possible Scam By Person Impersonating Officer

The Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office has recently received several reports of an individual, claiming to be an HCSO Sergeant, calling residents of Hidalgo County and telling them that they owe a fine and need to pay or they will face a court hearing.

The HCSO would like to remind people that Deputies will never ask for a payment or collect a fine from an individual. Never provide any personal information to an unknown caller. We ask that if you receive such a call or have recently received one please contact your local law enforcement agency or our office at 956-383-8114 and report the incident.
