The Boulder County Sheriff’s Office is warning residents about a man who is impersonating a deputy and has been calling female real estate agents and instructing them to turn themselves in.

The sheriff’s office on Tuesday posted about the apparent scam on its Facebook page.

According to the post, the caller instructed women to meet the “deputy” to compare signatures from a supposed subpoena and told women that they missed a court date and now had a warrant out for their arrest.

“While we don’t know what the intent is of the caller is, whether it’s an attempt to scam these women out of money, personal identifying information, or worse, what we do know is that this person is impersonating a law enforcement officer,” the sheriff’s office wrote.

The Boulder County Sheriff’s Office said it will never ask residents to pay a fees or fines or ask for personal identifying information over the phone.

Anyone who receives a suspicious sounding call like this is asked to call dispatch at 303-441-4444 to confirm the legitimacy of the call.
