SCAM ALERT: The Charles County Sheriff’s Office was recently informed about a scam. A citizen received a voice mail message from a man who said he was affiliated with the sheriff’s office. The caller told the citizen he was the subject of a “federal inquiry.” The caller instructed the citizen to call an out-of-state number to “settle the inquiry” and indicated a warrant would be obtained if the citizen did not comply. The citizen realized the call sounded like a hoax and called the sheriff’s office instead. Detectives learned the number that appeared on the citizen’s caller ID was the non-emergency line of the Charles County Sheriff’s Office and the number had been spoofed, meaning the caller had deliberately falsified the telephone number and/or name relayed as the caller ID to disguise the identity of the calling party. Anyone who receives this type of message is asked to call the CCSO non-emergency line at (301) 932-2222 and report the information. For additional information about caller ID spoofing visit FCC guides about caller-ID.
