WARNING: Prosecutor's Office Phone Scam Reported
Telephone calls have been received that appear to be coming from the King County Prosecuting Attorney's phone number: (206) 296-9000.
The caller has identified himself/herself as a special prosecutor or from the Court, claims the receiver is under investigation or has an outstanding warrant, and attempts to extort money.
This is a scam. Please hang-up and treat the call as you would any unauthorized, fraudulent request.
The Prosecutor's Office does not accept payments or collect funds over the phone.
