Forrest County Sheriff's Office warns residents of scam

FORREST COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - The Forrest County Sheriff's Office warned its residents of a scam on Tuesday.

The sheriff's office has received complaints of residents receiving calls regarding outstanding warrants and missed court dates. These calls are scams, and the sheriff's office will not solicit payments or fines of any kind over the phone, nor would they contact individuals and solicit money for outstanding warrants.

Do not give these callers any personal information, or money, especially when asked to send money via a money card, credit card, or green-dot cards.
