SCAM Alert

A recent notification was made regarding a SCAM that has been circulating our community. The SCAM consist of callers requesting payment over the phone to avoid penalties for “missing jury duty” or for “having an active warrant”. Often times the caller will represent themselves as law enforcement officers and use actual names of deputies or employees at the Sheriff’s Office. As indicated in the previous post, this is a SCAM.

Today, it was brought to our attention that scammers have in fact “spoofed” the GCSO non-emergency # of 864-271-5210 in an attempt to further authenticate their SCAM. If you receive a call from this number and the caller requests any form of payment or personal information such as your social security number, please HANG UP and call 864-467-5300 to file a report.
