The Sebastian County Sheriff would like to warn people about an old scam that seems to recently resurface. The department is receiving calls from citizens that someone who claims to be a deputy from the Sheriff's Office is trying to collect payments for fines. If the citizen doesnt agree to pay, the scammer is threatening to have a warrant sent for their arrest. The most recent phone scam is someone posing as a Deputy Davis and calling from 479-689-7664. However, multiple names, ranks and numbers may be used to trick citizens into sending money. Sheriff's office investigators have called this number and have received a voicemail that mimics the same message we have on our office telephone number, even stating to call 9-1-1 if it is an emergency. THIS IS A TRICK!!! The sheriff’s office will never ask people for money over the phone. If you have a question about a fine or a call you have received, please call us at 479-783-1051.
