    1. Stefanie, this is a common scam that is being used to bait people into giving up personal information by saying they have a NJ warrant for their arrest. It’s best practice to just block these phone calls as they will not stop harassing you with phone calls.

  2. I’m being told that there’s a bench warrant for me in Essex county. I don’t know for what though I never been arrested or had a court date in nj in my whole life

    1. David, we ran your name “David Portyansky” through our NJ warrant record database and did not find anything active

    1. Louis, we ran a NJ warrant check on Christian Jaques and did not find anything in our New Jersey criminal record resources. It’s possible there may have been an issue with a probation or parole order but that’s just speculation.
