Hart County residents report receiving spoof warrant calls

By AccessWDUN Staff

The Hart County Sheriff's Office Friday reported that several county residents had received misleading scam calls from people impersonating the department.

Residents said they had received calls indicating they had missed jury duty, and that they now had warrants out for their arrest.

The impersonators then instructed the residents to go to a cryptocurrency machine and send "a large amount of money" in order to remove the warrants.

The Hart County Sheriff's Office reports that they will never contact residents by phone about warrants and ask that individuals never attempt to pay money to have a warrant taken care of.

Additionally, the department indicated the scammers are overseas, making it so any money sent is impossible to get back.

Those who have received such calls have been asked to hang up and call the Hart County Sheriff's Office immediately at (706) 371-5246.
