The scammers are identifying themselves as a Houston County Sheriff's Office DEPUTIES
The scammers are telling citizens there is a warrant for their arrest or there will be a warrant for their arrest if the citizen(s) do not send them funds. They will tell the citizens to purchase a blue dot card, prepaid card, and now they are asking the citizens to transfer funds from their personal account to an account number they furnish the citizens.
In most cases these calls are coming from out of the country and Law enforcement has no jurisdiction and the citizens lose their hard earned funds.
If you receive any call and they ask you about personal information or threaten you that you will be arrested, just hang up, block the numbers or don't answer the phone.
DO NOT GIVE THE CALLER ANY INFORMATION PERSONAL OR BANKING.
If there is an issue, a warrant, we will not call you and ask you to pay over the phone.
We will come and see you in person.
The Scammers target our elderly and women. They BULLY and SCARE them to pay.
DON'T BE A VICTIM (HANG UP ON THEM)
