Placer County Sheriff’s Office sergeant-impersonation scam | #phishing | #scams | #hacking | #aihp


The sheriff’s office said the voicemails did not ask for anything specific, but they lead the receiver to believe there is an urgent matter and to call them back.

ROSEVILLE, Calif. — The Placer County Sheriff’s Office is warning people about a new scam where people are posing as two sergeants.

The sheriff’s office said the scammers left voicemails and though they didn’t ask for anything specific, they lead the receiver to believe there is an urgent matter and to call them back.

“When we called the two numbers back, one was disconnected and out of service and the second led to a Google subscriber service,” the sheriff’s office wrote in a Facebook post.

The Placer County Sheriff’s Office said no law enforcement agency in the U.S will call asking for money in any form. The sheriff’s office also does not call people who have warrants for their arrest.

People who get a phone call can hang up and research the number of the agency or organization to confirm if it is a legitimate call or a scam.

🚨PCSO IMPERSONATOR SCAM🚨

It has come to our attention there are scammers posing as two sergeants with the Placer County Sheriff’s Office. While the voicemails they left did not ask for anything specific, they lead the potential victim to believe there is an urgent matter and must call back to find out what the “sergeant” was inquiring about. When we called the two numbers back, one was disconnected and out of service and the second led to a Google subscriber service.

Remember, the Placer County Sheriff’s Office (and any other law enforcement agency in the U.S.) will NOT call you to ask for money in ANY FORM. Additionally, we do not give courtesy calls to those who have warrants for their arrest. You can always hang up and research the number of the agency/organization that called you and call it yourself to confirm whether the call you received is legitimate, or a scam.
