Scam Alert!!!

The Bureau of Criminal Identification (BCI) has received several phone calls from persons who have been contacted by people representing themselves as staff members of BCI and are demanding that funds be sent to cover overdue fees for a variety of reasons.  Many have been told that they will be sent a subpoena if they do not comply with the demand to send the funds.  The phone calls originate from area codes outside the state of Utah.  The numbers have been masked to reflect that they are from the United States when in reality they are in countries outside the U.S.

Please be aware that BCI does not collect fees via telephone calls.

If you receive a phone call from people indicating they are associated with the Utah Bureau of Criminal Identification, please do not send the funds requested as this is a scam.  Many times the caller will have correct personal information about the person they are calling and it will seem to be a legitimate request.  It is recommended that you request an alert be placed on your Social Security Number (SSN) with the credit bureaus and that you close current bank accounts and open new account numbers to protect yourself. You may also want to contact your local phone provider and report these calls as 'harassing' calls.

The federal government also has a website (www.ftc.gov) that contains very useful information for incidents of identity theft or potential identity theft.
