Stop Scams Targeting Registered Citizens

NARSOL in Action along with Registry Matters podcasts will be holding a nationwide conference call on Thursday, July 19, beginning at 6:00 pm eastern time to discuss the various monetary scams targeting registered citizens which have been making their way around the United States. We plan to remain live for three hours with the final hour to be an abbreviated session of Can They Do that? Some have fallen victim to the scams and have paid as much as $2000.00 to scammers claiming to be law enforcement calling about non-existent warrants.

We will have Lori Hamilton from Oklahoma on along with other NARSOL affiliate leaders and state advocates. In addition, we are inviting the other two advocacy organizations to send a representative to join us with the hope of collaborating with them on this vital issue. We will take phone calls from those who have either been victims of the scammers or know the details of such attempts. The goals are: (1) to provide potential victims with advice on recognizing scam attempts and helping to identify the culprits; (2) to assist law enforcement in apprehension; and (3) increasing public awareness which we hope will elevate the importance of apprehending the perpetrators.

NATIONAL CIVIL RIGHTS GROUP SLAMS SHERIFF GONZALES FOR BASELESS FEAR MONGERING

Washington, D.C. | May 21, 2018—The National Association for Rational Sexual Offense Laws (NARSOL) demands that Sheriff Manny Gonzales stop running politically motivated newspaper advertising in which his department stokes baseless fears about so-called “non-compliant sex offenders.”
In a recent, full-color insert, the sheriff’s department cautions the public not to approach “non-compliant sex offenders” because they may be armed and dangerous, a positively absurd insinuation. NARSOL wishes to remind Sheriff Gonzales—as well as all the citizens of New Mexico—that sex offender registration is a “non-punitive, civil regulatory scheme.” NARSOL condemns this type of fear-mongering hype because it needlessly raises anxiety levels throughout the community, and on the basis of conjectural facts.
Brenda Jones, NARSOL’s Executive Director had the following to say: “Sunday’s Albuquerque Journal’s paid advertisement is, first, a waste of vital taxpayer resources and, second, needlessly stokes fears about the dangerousness of individuals, some of whose offenses occurred more than 20 years ago.”
Jones continues, “NARSOL hopes to see the day when politicians such as sheriff Gonzales will not stoop to wasting precious taxpayer resources that could be better utilized protecting citizens.”
