A Rutherford County resident received a call from someone posing as a Rutherford County Sheriff’s sergeant in the civil process division.
The caller falsely tried to get $1,700 from the resident but the resident refused and notified the Sheriff’s Office. The name the caller used is not a sheriff’s sergeant or sheriff’s deputy.
Deputies DO NOT call residents and ask for cash or gift cards or green dot cards.
