The caller gives a date and time in which the resident must turn themselves in and/or turn over cash or gift cards to the caller to avoid jail. When questioned on specific information, the caller will sometimes hang up on the resident. These calls are not being made from the MCSO office and the caller is not affiliated with the sheriff’s office. Never give out personal identifying information over the phone.
