Beware: scammers pretending to be officers demanding money

Please make your friends and family aware of this ongoing scam. If this happens to you, hang up and call your local law enforcement agency to report it. Source wvua23.com

Tuscaloosa County Sheriff Ron Abernathy said don’t give out any personal information over the telephone. Deputies want residents to know they would never call to solicit money.

“Please, Please, don’t go get a gift card and give it to somebody over the telephone because any governmental agency is not going to function where they want a gift card brought in to them,” Abernathy said. Scammers are posing as officers. The caller ID may show the Sheriff’s Office phone number, but this is a scam.
