(Rutherford County, TN) – Be leery of scammers and please don’t fall for this scam… Rutherford County residents are once again receiving calls from someone claiming to be a Rutherford County deputy who says he has a warrant for their arrest, a sheriff’s detective said.

The scammer directs the resident to buy Green Dot Visa cards and give him the card numbers to avoid being arrested, said Detective Brian Gonzales. The Rutherford County Sheriff's Office confirmed, "This is a scam."


“The Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office does not make calls to anyone regarding these matters, nor do we accept any form of payment via telephone to satisfy legal matters,” Gonzales said. Simply hang up and avoid losing your money.
