During the traffic stop, the Marshal or Officer may provide a toll free number for the individual to call and conduct a telephone payment transaction with the City’s credit card vendor. This payment process has been initiated by the Municipal Court as a way to possibly bypass the necessity of arresting individuals with outstanding warrants. This option will only be offered by Carrollton City Marshals and Carrollton Police Officers on warrants issued by Carrollton Municipal Court.
Have You Received A Collection Letter or Telephone Call Regarding a Warrant? - Verify It With Your Court Before You Pay.
Recently, sham telephone calls have been made to residents by imposters claiming to represent the Dallas County Sheriff’s office or other law enforcement agencies in an attempt to collect payments from unsuspecting residents often by asking for their credit card information over the telephone.
The City of Carrollton is dedicated to communicating as clearly as possible and wants residents to know that your Municipal Court does generate warrant collection calls and letters. These calls and letters are valid and legitimate. The calls and letters explain your options for resolving the warrant, but do not request any credit card information.
One of the options given to pay for a warrant is to call the City's credit card partner GovPayNet using their toll-free telephone number to pay the warrant/fine. If anyone has a suspicion about a telephone call or collection letter from the Carrollton Municipal Court, it can be verified by calling the Carrollton Municipal Court at 972-466-3348 or by visiting cityofcarrollton.com/courts.
For more information on this payment option, contact the Carrollton Municipal Court at 972-466-3348.
