Phone Scam Targets Families of Incarcerated Persons



The North Carolina Department of Adult Correction has learned of a phone scam targeting family members of incarcerated individuals.


Scammers have contacted family members of incarcerated individuals to inform them that their family member can be released early if the offender is fitted with an ankle monitor and if the family pays a fee to the NC Post-Release Supervision and Parole Commission.

This is a scam.  The Commission never accepts money for early release or for any other reason.


If you are contacted, do not fall for this scam and do not send any money.

If you receive a call like this, you can report it to the NC Attorney General's office - Consumer Protection Division online or by phone at (877)-5-NO-SCAM.
