New scheme involves U.S. Marshal impersonator

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Someone is pretending to be with the U.S. Marshals Service and is trying to steal residents’ money.

The marshals have received a number of reports of someone calling people in Albuquerque and Santa Fe, telling them to pay a fine for a family member who’s in jail or hasn’t paid taxes.

The Marshals Service says it never asks for money on the phone.
