The Warren County Sheriff's Office said they've had a number of reports of a scammer calling people claiming to be a member of the department.

The scammer said that they have warrants for their arrest due to missing jury duty, or that people owed money and would be arrested if they didn't pay up.

It's a voice recording with a male claiming to be "Deputy Ford." The office said this person is not affiliated with them at all.

Sheriff Brett Hightower is urging people to never give their personal information to anyone over the phone.

The Warren County Sheriff's Office will never call anyone due to warrants.

"If the Sheriff's department is going to come out to your home, we're going to leave a note; we're going to leave a number for you to call," said Sheriff Brett Hightower. "And usually that would come into dispatch and they would put you through to a deputy to talk to you further about whatever incident they're looking for."

If you receive a call of this nature, contact the Sheriff's Office at (270)-842-1633.
