SCSO warns of phone scam

Leah Chase - Wednesday, March 06, 2019

The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office is warning area residents of a phone scam.

A scammer has been calling Shelby County residents and telling them they’re going to be arrested for missing jury duty.

The only way to keep from being arrested, according to the scammer, is to purchase gift cards and give the caller the gift card information over the phone.

The caller states he is Lieutenant Del Birdwell of the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office.

The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office will NEVER call to warn an individual of an arrest warrant.

The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office will NEVER request payment by means of a gift card.

The telephone number being used by the caller is 936.203.8900. The call may also show us as unknown or unavailable. If you receive a call, DO NOT give the caller any information. This is a scam.
