OKLAHOMA CITY -

Bail bondsmen across Oklahoma are warning of a scam targeting their clients.

The scammers call claiming to be a person’s bondsman and demand they wire money or their bond will be revoked.

“Every bad thing that could have happened was running through my mind,” Dale Bailey said. 

Bailey wired $900 to Las Vegas after being told, if he didn’t, his bond would be revoked.

In many of the calls, the scammers swear at the clients as they make threats.

“He said 'I will hunt you down and find you if you don’t give me the money,'” said another person who had recently bonded out of a jail in Kay County.

“We’d never ask you to wire any money to us,” said Audrey Conley with 3B Bail Bonds.

Dozens of their clients have received calls from scammers.

Conley said client phone numbers can appear on the public records, but she said co-signers on bonds are also getting phone calls.

“They are calling people who have just received a jail call period,” Conley said.

How those numbers are being acquired is a mystery to Conley.

So far, the scammers have surfaced in Kay, Creek and Oklahoma counties.
