Sheriff Morgan is warning all citizens of a scam which has recently been reported in Escambia County. The ECSO has received several complaints in which a caller identifies his or herself as an ECSO employee. The caller then proceeds to tell the victim that they have a warrant for their arrest but the warrant will be dropped if the victim sends money.“If you believe you are on the receiving end of a scam, try to get as much information from the caller as possible and report it to local law enforcement immediately,” says Sheriff Morgan. “If you think you have a warrant you can call the ECSO at 435-9523 during regular business hours. At no time will any member of the ECSO call you and ask you to send money.”It is important that citizens remain vigilant and on-guard against potential scams, especially as the Holidays approach. Scams come in many forms and fashions and can include but are not limited to telephone and door-to-door solicitations, internet scams, credit card fraud and a host of other opportunities for scam artists.
