New scam attempt in Forsyth County area

By Steve Winslow Anchor/Reporter

Another phone scam effort is being made in the region, and this one's targeting residents in the City of Cumming.

City of Cumming's police social media page has posted that officers have received several calls recently about a scammer claiming to be, "Sergeant Turner".  The caller is asking the targeted victims for payments in order to clear up a warrant.

Cumming Police Department's social media page says this is obviously a scam, as they would never ask for payments over the phone for any warrant or investigation.

Officials with Cumming Police and Forsyth County's Sheriff's Office remind anyone with outstanding warrants that they will always arrive at the suspect's home to fulfill the warrant in one form of collection or another.
