GWINNETT COUNTY – A scam alert from Gwnnett County. The sheriff’s office says they’ve received dozens of reports of folks getting calls from people claiming to be deputies collecting fines.
The callers are said to have detailed knowledge of the sheriff’s office and are especially persuasive.
The AJC reports at least four victims made payments as high as $900. They’d been told the money would void an arrest warrant issued because they failed to appear for jury service.
If you have gotten a call that sounds like this scam, you’re asked to contact the Gwinnett Sheriff’s Office at 770-619-6655.
