Another scam is impacting Middle Tennesseans. This most recent scam alert comes from Warren County, where the Sheriff says that some residents have been approached by an individual claiming to be with the codes department.


Apparently, an individual is going to residences within Warren County and identifying himself as a codes officer. The unknown subject asks multiple questions in an attempt to gain information.

In many scams, like the one in Warren County, the con-artist travels from county to county never staying in one place too long in hopes of not being caught. If you are approached by someone claiming to be with the codes department and you are unsure of who the person is, call your local law enforcement agency.
