Recently several Marysville citizens have reported people claiming to be police officers demanding payment of fines for various reasons. These people have identified themselves using actual officers’ names in order to make their demands seem more credible.

The Marysville Police Department cautions citizens that any phone calls from a subject claiming to be a police officer demanding payment is a scam. No police officer or police agency will demand payment for missed court dates, jury duty, fines, or owed taxes. The Marysville Police Department does not collect fines of any sort.

As a reminder, citizens should never provide personal information (social security number, bank account, credit card or gift card number, etc.). Do not comply with these demands, and immediately hang up and contact your local law enforcement agency.
