NOTICE: A phone scam is targeting people in custody and their families. Callers pretend to be employees of the U.S. Probation Office, U.S. Parole Commission, and Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP). Their goal is to obtain money and personal information. Callers have promised to get individuals out of BOP custody, end supervised release, and approve relocation requests.
U.S. probation officers and staff from other federal agencies do not ask for money in exchange for services. Please report these calls to the Federal Trade Commission online or by phone at 1 (877) 382-4357 (9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.).
