Warning - Fake Traffic Ticket/Bench Warrant Scam
Original post made by resident, Another Pleasanton neighborhood, on Jul 25, 2014
In some cases, a caller identifies himself as a police officer from the Alameda County Warrants Division in Fremont and identifies himself as Sgt Bruce Miller. They indicate that a Pleasanton traffic camera captured a "failure to yield" violation and requests a payment otherwise a bench warrant will be issued.
The caller instructs the victim to call another number to place a payment. The caller makes a similar threat regarding bench warrants if the money is not received.
If you have received a similar call, please contact the Pleasanton Police Department at 931-5100.
