Sheriff Graves Announces Scam Alert

scam5Coffee County Sheriff Steve Graves says scammers are back at work in the area.
A number of individuals across the county are getting calls from an individual who claims to be from the sheriff’s department and that he has a warrant for their arrest for various things. He then tells his intended victim that they can avoid being booked into jail if they send money via a Green Dot credit card. Graves stated that these calls are definitely SCAMS, please do not fall for this. The sheriff added that this time scammers are using actual deputies’ names.
Call authorities if you think someone is scamming you.
