Scammers impersonating Coffee County Sheriff's Office

By  | 

COFFEE COUNTY, Ala. (WTVY) -- On May 19, 2020, Coffee County Sheriff's Office started receiving complaints of an unknown person or person's calling and claiming to be an employee of the Coffee County Sheriff's Office.

These calls are advising whoever answers the call that they had missed a court date etc. The caller is trying to get the victim to pay amounts ranging from $3000 to $5000.

Caller ID on victim's phone may show the Coffee County Sheriff's Office number, this number has been spoofed, "copied" to look like the phone call has come from the sheriff's office.

Coffee County Sheriff's Office will never contact you by phone in an attempt to collect any type of monetary funds.

Please do not give the caller any information that they ask for, simply hang up on the caller.
