Department of Public Safety Scam Warning

Texas - The Texas Department of Public Safety is warning people against organizations claiming to be associated with law enforcement.

Some of the groups have misleading terms in their names like Texas Rangers, State Troopers, Texas Highway Patrol, or Department of Public Safety but the Texas Department of Public Safety says they never ask private citizens for money.

If you have been contacted by an organization you think is misrepresenting itself you can call the Better Business Bureau at 379-7133 or the Attorney General's Consumer Protection Division at 621-0508.
