San Diego Sheriff’s Department Issue Phone Scam Warning

Scammers are on the rise and continue to be ruthless by calling us every day and sending us bogus text messages but now scammers are changing the caller id to the Sheriff Department.

The San Diego County Sheriff Department has issued a warning to the public to be aware of an arrest warrant phone scam that was reported by six people on October 30, 2021.

The scam caller goes by Lieutenant Hartman and informs people they missed a court appearance and must immediately come, alone, to the sheriff’s headquarters at 9621 Ridgehaven Court.

The sheriff’s department released a statement saying “This is a scam. To be clear, the Sheriff’s Department does not employ a Lieutenant Hartman. The Sheriff’s Department main office is also closed on weekends.”

The statement continued with “Outstanding warrants cannot be resolved over the phone or at the sheriff’s department headquarters. Warrants can only be cleared through the court. People with outstanding warrants are urged to turn themselves in Monday – Friday during business hours at any of the sheriff’s court facilities.” 

The statement concluded that “You want to be a law-abiding citizen and you surely don’t want to end up in jail, so in a panic, you end up giving your personal information or money to defuse the situation.”

If you do not recognize or aren’t expecting an unknown number to call your cell phone, let it go to voicemail. If it’s important, the person will leave a voicemail for you to call them back.

Gas Prices Continue to Rise in San Diego

Bad news for commuters to campus each day. Prices for Gasoline in San Diego County continue to rise.

The average price increased for 16 consecutive days and as of Sunday prices advertised around the county were at $4.502, the highest we’ve seen since October 19, 2012, according to AAA and the Oil Price Information Service.

The rise in gas prices is caused by high crude oil prices. The price of a barrel of West Texas Intermediate crude for November delivery on the New York Mercantile Exchange rose six of the past seven trading sessions.

The crude oil price has increased 134% from its 52-week low of $35.79 on October 30, 2020, because of higher demand following looser restrictions from the COVID-19 stay-at-home order.

Typically around this time of the year has prices tend to drop a little bit but that is not the case. Another reason for the increase according to Jeffery Spring with the Automobile Club of Southern California “There are more people on the road. Increased industry, increased demand for the product over the last few months it’s requiring more transportation needs, which means more gasoline and diesel but just pushing the demand for fuel products up more than expected.”
