Sheriff’s Office Warns Residents Of Latest Scams

The Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office made the following statement concerning scams occurring in Lawrence County.

“We have been made aware of a couple of phone scams currently making their rounds.  The first one is calling local businesses claiming to be an official with the Sheriff’s Office and stating that a person at that number is in some sort of legal trouble and giving them a number to call to contact a deputy.  These calls are not coming from the Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office.  The second claims to be with Direct TV/AT&T stating that the person’s cable box needs repairs or to be replaced.  The caller may have partial account information.  This too is a scam.  DO NOT give any personal information to anyone over the phone.  Thank you.”
