Henry County Sheriff’s Office warns against scam
The Henry County Sheriff’s Office is warning the area about a scam involving citizens getting calls from a person identifying themselves as an officer saying they have a warrant for their arrest.
Lieutenant Gary Vandiver says the scammer is calling from different phone numbers, using the name of an actual HCSO officer, and tells the potential victim to send money to a Venmo or Zelle account to avoid being arrested.
Lt. Vandiver says this is a scam and to not send any money. The Henry County Sheriff’s Office does not call people and tell them to send money.
If you receive one of these calls and are given a Venmo, Zelle, or another cash app account number to send money to, notify the HCSO Criminal Investigations Division at 731-642-1672.
