“Nobody from our office will ever ask you for money!” the post says, calling the message a scare tactic. “This number also has a voicemail set up that says they are claiming to be our warrants and citation division.”

The Lee County Sheriff’s Office reiterates that this is a scam and people should not give any information to anyone who calls from that number.
