Sheriff Robbie K. Goins tells WLAF, “A scam is circulating with the sheriff’s office telephone number being cloned and showing up on caller ID.”  He goes on to say the scammer is claiming to be a detective with warrants on the person answering the phone.  The caller is giving instructions not to talk to anyone else and giving further instructions, ultimately, to go to the bank for a financial transaction to settle the case. Sheriff Goins said, “If you receive this call, please ignore and hang up immediately and document it.  He said we do not operate, nor does any law enforcement agency operate that way with cases or warrants.”  (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 08/07/2018-4PM)
