Sheriff warning of new scam targeting elderly; Callers impersonating deputies
OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma County Sheriff’s office is sending out a warning about a new scam targeting the elderly.
Officials said the latest tactic involves callers impersonating “deputies” claiming you have outstanding fines.
The callers ask you to purchase a pre-paid card to pay the fines.
Officials said two inmates in Georgia are believed to be behind the scam.
