SCAM ALERT!!!! Our office would like to make our citizens aware of two scams that we have received several calls regarding lately. The first is from a caller that claims to represent Microsoft and advises that the customer’s Microsoft account has been compromised. They request login and credit card information so that they can investigate further. This is a scam. Please do not release any information to this person.
The second is a person claiming to represent your local law enforcement agency and they ask for credit card information to make payments on fines and warrants. This is also a scam. You will not receive a phone call from law enforcement regarding credit card payments for any type of fine or warrant.
Always be very careful to whom you give personal information of any kind to. If you are in doubt, call the Polk County Sheriff’s Office at 479-394-2511 with any concerns.
