SCAM ALERT SCAM ALERT SCAM ALERT
Many people this afternoon have received phone calls from a scammer claiming to be Lt. Ellis of the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department warrant division. Our agency has no such person or division. The person calling does have some personal information of those he's calling and is seeking payment for fines and is calling to collect. Rest assured this is a SCAM. If you call the number back it reaches a recording that attempts to sound legitimate but again its a SCAM. Deputies will NEVER attempt to seek payment over the phone for anything ever. This same scam has new releases from across the country. If you'd like to report the scammer follow this link:.
