Yet again there is a telephone scam happening in Campbell County. This one is particularly unique as not only are they spoofing our office telephone number on caller I.D., but they are using the actual name of one of our Sergeants.

ALWAYS KNOW, the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office, The IRS, The F.B.I. and so many other governmental entities will not call you on the phone for payment of a fine or to collect money to settle any issue. Scammers have gotten quite skilled at spoofing a caller I.D. with other’s real numbers. Now they are researching to find real employees names to use. When they call you, tell the caller that you will hang up and call the Sheriff’s Office yourself to settle the issue.
