Sheriff’s Department Scam

Posted: Updated:
There is a new scam in Texoma.

A local resident received a call from someone claiming to be from the Sheriff’s Department.  The called told the resident that they had an outstanding bond for thousands of dollars, but could pay a smaller amount to have the fees dropped.

The resident ended up paying $50, but when they went to the Sheriff’s Office to check on the fine, they told the resident they had no fine like that on record.

We’re taking a closer look at this scam and how you can protect yourself.  Tune in on Thursday night at 5:00p.m. for the updates.
