SCAM ALERT – “You Have A Warrant” Phone Scam

ASHEBORO NC – The Randolph County Sheriff’s Office is warning people to be aware of a phone scam claiming they have an arrest warrant.

We’ve heard there is a phone scam going around again that there is a warrant for a person’s arrest in Randolph County and to press 0 for more information.
Do not press zero!!! HANG UP!
They would just tell you that you owe a certain amount of money immediately or they will come and arrest you. ALSO, Please DO NOT send any form of money to these scammers! And do not volunteer any personal identifying information.
For a warrant, the Sheriff’s Office will visit in person. Also, officers never demand direct payment to resolve a warrant.
