NO!

That is a scam going around. The FTC just fined a credit collection agency for using scare tactics and that was one of them. Here is the article.

The US Marshalls MUST HAVE A SIGNED warrant issued by a Judge in a COURT OF LAW to arrest you. If you were charged with a CRIME and it is related to what you mention is a "old credit card" debt and a crime was committed, then I would say MAYBE but the best way to find out is simply call any LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY ie local Police Department and have them run your name for warrants...
