Someone posing as a Rutherford County Sheriff's deputy called a citizen Friday and demanded $2,000 or the citizen would be arrested on a warrant.
Rutherford County Sheriff's deputies DO NOT call and demand money for arrest warrants.
The voicemail stated in one call his name was Deputy James Marshall and a second time, Deputy Michael Cane. The Sheriff's Office does not have any employees by those names.
In another scam, callers are using the name of Chief Deputy Garrett and Deputy Chief Lowery, who both work at the Sheriff's Office.
If you get these calls, simply hang up. NEVER give any money to these scammers.
