Sheriff’s Fraud Hotline

Residents of Ventura County have been the constant victims of scams ranging from fraudulent phone callers falsely demanding money to in person lottery scams. In order to prevent further victimization, the Ventura County Sheriff's Office has created a Scam Hotline for every patrol station. When you call the hotline, a recorded message will detail the most current and prevalent scams in your area. At the conclusion of the message, you can let us know about any other scams you are aware of. The line is frequently monitored and we will update the current scams based on the information you provide us as well as well as information from our investigative units.

Scams not only vary from County to County, they also vary from city to city so we created Scam Hotlines for every patrol station. Here are the phone numbers:

  • Camarillo: 805-388-5175
  • Headquarters (Ventura unincorporated area): 805-654-2145
  • Fillmore: 805-477-7020
  • Moorpark: 805-299-1566
  • Ojai: 805-477-7050
  • Thousand Oaks: 805-371-8327

Please be vigilant and report any scams to us so we can share the information.
