Sheriff Donald Valenza requests our Media Partners to please inform the public of the SCAM going on again in the Wiregrass area. Over the last two weeks a person or persons are calling citizens advising they are Major Bill Rafferty or Captain James Ivey of the Houston County Sheriff's Office.  The caller is spoofing the Houston County Sheriff's Office phone number(s) (334) 677-4882, (334) 677-4888, or (334) 677-4808. 


The individuals are stating they have a warrant for your arrest for missing JURY DUTY.

They inform you the matter can be resolved if you put money on some type of cash card.

They will ask you for the numbers on the cash card and they will then have access to the funds on the cash cards.

We will not ask you to pay cash, cash cards, checks, or money orders. If there is a warrant for your arrest we will come to your residence or location and arrest you and you will settle any issues with the Court.
