Lowndes Sheriff’s office warns about scam

LOWNDES CO., GA (WALB) - The Lowndes County Sheriff's office is warning the public that once again, scam artists are calling people, pretending to be a Lowndes County Deputy and asking for money to pay fines and avoid arrests.

Sheriff Chris Prine says the Lowndes County Sheriff's Office or any other law enforcement agency would never demand money by telephone.

They say anyone who receives these calls should hang up, and not give out personal information or money.

Anyone with information should call the Criminal Investigations Division at 229-671-2950.
