Bedford County warns of elaborate scam in the area

Bedford County Sheriff’s Department is alerting the public of a scam in the area that involves a caller telling the intended victim that a family member is in jail.

The caller goes on to say that there is a fine involved and that a fine must be paid in order for their family member to be released from jail.

This scam goes a step further than previous ones we have reported. This scam attempt also involves the scammer actually coming to the intended victims’ residence after the initial call to then request money.
