The Christian County Sheriff’s Office is warning of phone scams in the area. The scammers are using software to change their calls to appear as if they are from a law enforcement agency and saying they are from the Christian County Sheriff’s office phone number. The scammer claims that you have violated the law by missing a call for federal grand jury. The scammer will then threaten a warrant will be issued for your arrest, but if you pay the fine over the phone, you will have the warrant removed.
The Christian County Sheriff’s office can not remove a warrant, only a judge can withdraw a warrant. The Sheriff’s office will not request any credit card information over the phone. If you receive a call that doesn’t seem legit, ask for the caller’s name and then tell them you will call them back. Hang up the phone and check to make sure it’s a legit phone number. Don’t call the number the scammer gives you, call the actual published phone number.
