CLAY COUNTY, Fla. – An alert was issued by the Clay County Sheriff’s Office on Friday after multiple reports of fraudulent phone calls.
Within the last week, deputies said people reported a caller stating “warrants” will be issued to those who do not adhere to certain warnings and make certain payments.
The Sheriff’s Office said if the call sounds suspicious, it probably is.
Officials are encouraging people who receive a similar phone call to not send money or provide any personal information.
To report a scammer, you can contact the Sheriff’s Office at (904) 213-6600 and contact the Federal Trade commission here.
