New U.S. Marshals Scam

Scam Alert

A new scam targeting Central Arkansans has duped at least two people out of $2,600.

Authorities say the caller claims they are a deputy named Timothy Byrd with the U.S. Marshals Office for the Eastern District of Arkansas. Even the documents look convincing, but both U.S. Attorney’s Office and the U.S. Marshals Service said they’re fake.

KATV reports according to Cody Hiland, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Arkansas, the documents do not contain the date that accompanies it, nor do they look anything like the documents that come from his office.
