Advisory: Phone Scam

 The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office is issuing a warning to the public regarding a scam that has again surfaced locally.  

The scam involves a caller claiming to be a representative from a law enforcement entity stating that the victim owes money and needs to purchase a “green dot” card from a local retailer and provide the card information to the caller, thus defrauding the victim.

Anyone who has fallen victim to this scam is asked to contact their local law enforcement provider on how to report the incident. The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office can be contacted at (936)-760-5800.
