Walker County Sheriff Steve Wilson announced today that citizens are receiving telephone calls where the caller identifies themselves as a Deputy Sheriff. The caller states that there is a warrant for the individual and proceeds to instruct the victim in how they can pay the warrant dismissed.
Sheriff Wilson stated “This is a scam that has been going around the Tennessee Valley area for several years. The Walker County Sheriff’s Office will never telephone you to request payment for a warrant.”
Sheriff Wilson warned citizens to never give out personal information to telephone solicitors.
If you feel you have been a victim of this scam, please contact Walker County dispatch to report the crime at 706-375-7810.
