The City of Helotes has received reports of scammers calling residents to demand immediate payment for a warrant to avoid arrest. The calls may claim to be from the Helotes Police Department, but these calls are scams. The City does not accept gift cards for payment, will never ask you to wire transfer funds for payment, and will not accept payments by phone.
Similar scams are taking place in other parts of Bexar County. Any resident with questions about a possible warrant should contact the City directly. Residents are encouraged to be vigilant to avoid being scammed.
