Bail Bond Scam
From the desk of Sheriff Scott Bradley
Over the past few days, the Van Buren County Sheriff’s Department, has been receiving calls, from recently bonded person, from the Van Buren County Detention Center or their family members. They are reporting that someone representing themselves as a Bonding Company who bonded the individual, are calling demanding money, and if the individual or their family members do not send it to them they will be put back in jail.
I just want to let everyone know this is another scam, going around and do not send money to them.
You should report such attempts to the Arkansas Attorney General’s Office at (501) 682-2007 or the Federal Bureau of Investigation at 800-225-5324.
