Scam Alert

THE CRAIGHEAD COUNTY SHERIFF OFFICE HAS RECEIVED SEVERAL REPORTS THIS MORNING (07/01/14) OF A SCAM.

 

THE CALLER TELLS THE VICTIMS THAT HE IS A LT. OR SGT. WITH THE CRAIGHEAD COUNTY SHERIFF OFFICE AND WE HAVE WARRANTS ON THE PERSON THAT HE CALLS.

HE TELLS THE VICTIMS THAT THEY HAVE MISSED JURY DUTY AND WARRANT HAS BEEN ISSUED FOR THEM. HE THEN TELLS THEM THAT THEY COULD TAKE CARE OF THE WARRANT BY GOING TO KROGER’S AND GETTING A PRE-PAID CARD AND CALLING HIM BACK AND HE WOULD TAKE CARE OF THE WARRANT FOR THEM

THE CRAIGHEAD COUNTY SHERIFF DEPARTMENT DOES NOT DO THINGS THIS WAY.

 

PLEASE DO NOT SEND ANYTHING TO THE PERSON THAT IS CALLING, SAYING THEY ARE OFFICERS WITH THE CRAIGHEAD COUNTY SHERIFF OFFICE.

ALSO IF YOU GET A CALL FROM THE PERSON, CONTACT THE CRAIGHEAD COUNTY SHERIFF OFFICE AT 870 933-4551.

 

AGAIN THIS IS A SCAM.
