Phone Scams

The Laurens County Sheriff's Office continues to receive notifications of phone calls by people impersonating law enforcement officers. The Laurens County Sheriff's Office, or any reputable law enforcement agency will never call to solicit funds, pre-paid cards or to use bully techniques to get money. If you receive such a call, it is a scam.

Oftentimes these scams originate in distant places and with modern technology they can appear to originate locally. Please be aware of these phone scams and do not allow yourself to become a victim of these social engineering tricks. These scams can be disguised as federal agencies such as the IRS, state agencies such as the Department of Revenue, or local agencies such as the Sheriff's Office. If you are contacted by a source in question, it is better to assume it is a scam than to become a victim.
