Scams continue to be a problem in our county.

Recently I received a call from a concerned citizen in reference to a possible scam.

The citizen reported that someone claiming to be with a local electric delivery company told him that he had not paid his bill and his power would be turned off if he didn’t wire money to a certain address immediately.

Scams like this are meant to catch you off guard and get you to react and send money without thinking because as hot as it is no one wants to be without AC.

Other scams that continue to be tried in our area are the Jury duty scams or the warrant scam. These scammers tell you that you either have a warrant for your arrest or that you missed jury duty and a warrant will be issued if you don’t immediately send money. Of course this is a scam; Local Law Enforcement will not call you and have you send money to avoid a warrant arrest.

Please think before you react to these scams. Remember if it is too good to be true or if you have to send money to get money it is a scam, or if someone threatens you with arrest or to turn off your power and you are not sure it is a scam call and check it out first.

Stay safe and God Bless

The Sheriff’s Office has received several complaints from citizens recently in reference to someone calling them from what appears to be a local number.  The caller states that he or she is with the Sheriff’s Office and that the person receiving the call has a warrant and they need to meet them somewhere in town or put money on a card and send it somewhere or they will be arrested.  THIS IS A SCAM!  The Sheriff’s Office or other law enforcement agencies will not call you and demand money to take care of a warrant.  Please do not fall for this!  Report it to your local law enforcement agency.

Thank you,
Sheriff Taylor
