Please be aware the Coffee County Sheriff’s Department has received calls regarding a phone scam that has been done in the past and is happening again. The callers identify themselves as members of the sheriff’s department. The callers advise victims that they have an active warrant, and if the victim pays a fee, this will satisfy the warrant, and they will not be arrested. The phone scammers are requesting to be paid via Bitcoin.
Please know this is a scam, and no one in Coffee County Sheriff’s Department will be contacting you by phone and requesting payment for anything. DO NOT give these people any information. Hang up and call your local law enforcement agency. If you or anyone you know has fallen victim to this scam, notify your local law enforcement.
