Reports of scam phone calls claiming to be from the Floyd County Sheriff’s Office have popped up again in the surrounding area.
The caller claims to have a warrant from FCSO for the person and the person must pay a certain amount of money or send them gift cards to clear their name.
FCSO Cpl. Anthony Cromer stated that the Sheriff’s Office “will never call you asking for a payment to clear a warrant.”
Cromer went on to say that these scammers often target elderly people.
