SCAM ALERT: Charles County Sheriff’s Office

February 19, 2020 - Charles County Sheriff’s Office have received several reports from citizens stating that they were contacted over the phone by a person claiming to be a member of the Charles County Sheriff’s Office. The caller would state that the victim had a warrant issued for his or her arrest, and instructed the victim to send money.

This is similar to other scams we have seen in the past, in which the caller claims to be from the U.S. Marshal Service, IRS, or other entity. Hundreds of these scams occur every day across the nation.

If you receive a call like this, DO NOT wire money or gift cards or iTUNES cards and NEVER give out your personal information. Instead, hang up on these thieves and report it by calling our non-emergency number, 301-932-2222.
