The Calhoun County Sheriff’s Department is warning the public of a phone scam of a caller posing as an investigator for the Marshall Regional Law Enforcement Center.

The caller attempts to get funds to clear fines and costs of an arrest. The Sheriff’s Department was alerted by a resident who received such a call on Thursday, with his caller I.D. showing the call as coming from the Enforcement Center.

The Sheriff’s Office reminds the public that they never conduct business in this manner and if you receive such a call, to hang-up and contact authorities.
