Information on Scam Phone Calls

Please see the Press Release regarding scam phone calls that have been received by residents of the DC Metro Area.  Currently, several subjects are attempting to scam residents out of money under several false names.

The first subject is using the name of "Sgt. Jackson" and he has been calling from a phone number of 301-310-1203 or 301-323-8773.

The second subject is using the name of Sgt. James Wheeler - or - Deputy David Williams and they have been calling from 240-979-6686 and asking victims to call him back at 1-855-286-6662 or 240-776-2733 or 240-278-0937.

The third subject is using the name of Sgt. Kevin Price and Sgt. Mark Howard and asking vicitms to call back at  240-704-8478 or 240-904-6478

The fourth subject is using the name of Deputy -or- Captain Holoway and asking victims to call back  at 240-770-1267 or 240-446-8818 or 240-278-0937

Most recently, a subject calling from 240-343-0182 has been using the alias of Jack Rayne  as well as 301-905-0828 using the alias Ron Walker.


The Wheeler subject has also been "spoofing" the Montgomery County Circuit Court Phone number (240-777-9400) Spoofing allows a caller to make an incoming call appear to be originating from a different phone number in order to further the apperance of a legitimate phone call.

Remember, Law Enforcement will NEVER ask you for money, pre-paid cards or financial information over the phone.

If you believe that you have received a scam call, and have further questions, contact Deputy Johnson at (240) 777-7041. If you have lost money to these scammers, please contact the Montgomery County Department of Police at 301-279-8000
