Sheriff Shaver said that his office has received calls from citizens informing them that someone has been calling residents saying they are from the Sheriff’s Office and demanding money to clear up a warrant and avoid arrest.
Sheriff Shaver told us this is a scam, DO NOT fall for it. Shaver said that if you do have a warrant or other legitimate business with the Sheriff’s Office they certainly will not call you by phone and will never demand money to avoid arrest, it just does not work that way.
Don’t be a victim of this scam and as we have told numerous times, never ever send money to anyone without proper verification.
If you have any concerns you can always contact the sheriff’s office to verify the information. The easiest thing to do is simply HANG UP!
