Warning Concerning U.S. Marshals Impersonation Calls
The United States Marshals Service contacted the Medical Board office regarding a scam phone call that seems to currently be targeting Arkansas physicians. The callers identify themselves as a Deputy United States Marshal, and advise the physician that they have an outstanding warrant(s) for Failure To Appear on a jury subpoena and tell them they need to appear at their closest Federal courthouse in order to appear before a magistrate judge. If you receive such a call, the United States Marshals Service recommends that you get the caller’s information and tell them you will have your attorney call them back. You should then contact the United States Marshals Service in Little Rock, AR at (501) 324-6256 and speak with Deputy U.S. Marshal Jeremy Hammons at extension #271. At this time the United States Marshals Services does not believe there to be a physical threat to anyone, but intended victims should remain vigilant and report any suspicious persons or activity to their local law enforcement officials.
