A phone scam has been reported in Washington County. According to the Washington Communications Center, the caller states they are an employee of the Washington County Sheriff’s Office and advises the recipient they have won $1,000,000 but to receive the money they must first send in $3,000. This scam has also manipulated the caller identification to show 653-2107 the actual business number for the Washington County Sheriff’s Office and Communications Center.
This is a scam and citizens should not send money or provide personal information. The Washington County Sheriff’s Office urges citizens to not to participate in this or any other potentially questionable transaction.
