Reports of a phone scammer acting as an Walton County Sheriff’s Office Deputy have arisen again. The scammer claims to be calling about a warrant against you for missed jury duty, or something along those lines. The scammer then gives you a fake phone number and claims that the fee must be paid with gift cards, reloadable debit cards, or some similar means of payment. Walton County Sheriff’s Office would like to inform the public that deputies never will make a call like this. If anyone receives the scammers call, report it to Walton County Sheriff’s Office by hanging up and calling (850) 892-8111 to request verification of the caller’s validity or lack of validity.
