We are getting calls again that someone is calling individuals and claiming they are with the Canadian County Sheriffs Office. They will advise them that they need to pay a fine because they have missed their court date. The caller then advises them to pay in some manner, usually buy a card bought from a convenience store. Please be aware of these scams. The sheriff's office will never call you and ask you to pay a fine over the phone. The easiest way to avoid these type of scams is, if you do not know who is calling you do not answer the phone. If they leave a message and you feel that something is not right, call the law enforcement agency that they are claiming to be with.
