Sheriff’s Investigator Warns: Beware Of People Asking For Payment By Phone

Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office Chief Investigator Corley Weatherford cautions citizens to guard against people asking for financial payment by phone. This is especially true of people claiming to represent law enforcement, particularly sheriff’s office staff.

Weatherford released the following scam alert:

Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office has become aware that people are representing themselves as Members of Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office. These individuals are using scams including you have an arrest warrant, missed jury duty, and other potentially unknown strategies by phone. Each of these will result in asking for personal information and ultimately payment of money. Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office will NEVER ask you to pay a fine or other money by phone. Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office would only take any payment in person at our Sheriff’s Office.

If you have been contacted and actually sent funds usually by the use of prepaid cards to what you believe to be Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office, please contact the Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office (903) 438-4040
