The Sara­sota County Sheriff’s Office is warn­ing cit­i­zens about a tele­phone scam that attempts to extort money from inno­cent individuals. There are two recent reports of a caller claim­ing to be with the sheriff’s office war­rants division who tells vic­tims that they are wanted but the mat­ter can be cleared up if the vic­tim loads the fine amount onto a prepaid credit card and pro­vides it to the caller. Nei­ther per­son com­plied with the caller and both reported it to law enforcement.
