WSU Vancouver Public Safety has received several reports of a telephone scam caller claiming to be a Clark County Sheriff's Lieutenant calling or leaving messages for WSU Vancouver staff and faculty. The caller tells the victim that there are police warrants out for them and offers to help clear them up by asking the victim to buy gift cards to cover the warrant amount(s).

No police agency will EVER collect money for warrants over the telephone and no police agency will EVER ask a person to purchase gift cards to pay any fine or warrant fee.
