In the past few days a new trend has emerged where phone scammers are identifying themselves as Constable Mark Herman on the phone in order to gain the trust of our citizens, setting them up for financial loss.

In one case, an elderly victim was at a bank withdrawing $1,400.00 when an alert bank teller became suspicious. The teller contacted Constable Deputies and a criminal investigation was initiated. The scam was prevented by the action taken by the bank teller and Constables. The following day, four more calls were reported to our office involving this same approach by the scammers.

"The Harris County Constable's Office Precinct 4 will never call you to solicit payment, if you receive a call like this, you are urged to contact our dispatch at 281-376-3472." - Constable Mark Herman
