The Leon County Sheriff’s Office, Lowndes County Sheriff’s Office and the Wakulla County Sheriff’s Office are warning their residents of a phone scam involving callers posing as a Sheriff’s deputy. The caller demands payment or the person will be arrested. This is a scam. Law enforcement agencies will never call someone and demand money in lieu of being arrested. It is possible that this same telephone scam could move into Madison County. If you receive a similar call, you should not send any money or provide the caller with any information. If you have received similar calls or been a victim of this scam, contact the Madison County Sheriff’s Office at (850) 973-4001 to file a report.
