Amarillo Phone Scam

The Amarillo Police Department has reported that scammers are using fake dispatch and APD numbers to call residents.

The scammers are telling people that they have an active traffic warrant and demand payment.

Citizens need to be aware that APD or any other law enforcement agency will never call by phone to inform anyone about a warrant.

APD will also never call asking for payments over the phone.

If anyone wants to know if they may possibly have a warrant they may call the municipal court at 806-378-6230 or go to
