LPSO warns of telephone scammers impersonating deputies


From the Livingston Parish Sheriff's Office

ALERT: Scammers are trying to access your hard-earned money! DON’T LET THEM!

Here’s what we know:
>So far, these scammers have been contacting dentist & doctors’ offices.
>They are telling potential victims that a warrant has been issued for their arrest.
>The reason? A missed jury duty appearance.
>To avoid arrest, they want cold hard cash. (DON’T FALL FOR THIS!)
>Via an app, the scammer connects with potential targets through what appears to be a local number.
>The number that keeps reappearing: (225) 424-8143.
>We have reason to believe the scammers are based out of the country.

>If you call this number back, you’ll hear a recording. On that recording, you’ll hear the scammer PRETENDING TO BE with the ‘Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Department’ (We are the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office) & that a deputy will call you back within an hour.
>No one has fallen for this scam, yet. We hope no one does!

SAFETY TIPS:
>Please don’t respond - at all.
>If you happen to answer, hang up & call your local law enforcement agency (or LPSO).
