Customer Question

I have been contacted, via email, by various individuals that have stated I have an arrest warrant in my name. One has stated he is with the state of washington attorney generals office. Is there any way I can find out whether these arrest warrants are legitimate, legal.

I'm Zoey and I'll be assisting you. I'm reviewing your question now. Are you online at this time?

This sounds very suspicious. If there were really a warrant for your arrest, you wouldn't get generally get email notification. The government wouldn't typically even have your email address. Police would just show up at your door with the warrant and take you in.

What are these emails asking you to do? Please give me the email addresses from which the messages came.
