MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office has issued a warning about a recent scam.

According to the sheriff's office, several people, including people out of state, have received calls from someone identifying himself as a deputy. The caller told the victims they missed jury duty or have a warrant for their arrest.

The caller then asked the victims to use PayPal or wire a payment to him.

The sheriff's office say it doesn't call and request payments for fines over the phone.

If you receive a suspicious phone call, get the caller's name and phone number for the caller. If the person refuses, hang up can call law enforcement.

You can also verify if you have a warrant for your arrest by contacting our Warrant Office at (334)832-2579 or you can access our website at www.Montgomerysheriff.com and search our warrant database.
