Scam Alert from Columbia County Sheriff’s Office

A message from the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office:

Scammers are calling citizens stating they are Sheriff Mike Loe or a representative of the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office, whether it be an investigator or deputy, stating that they need your social and your date of birth, then they need you to send money from Walmart when he called back and that citizens will be arrested if they don’t send money. Please do not fall victim to this scam. We do not ask people for their social security numbers or dates of birth unless we are conducting an investigation on their behalf. We also do not ask for money via Walmart.
