Tulare County Sheriff's Office Warns of New Telephone Scam
Last updated 7/24/2022 at 7:37pm | View PDF
The Tulare County Sheriff's Office has received multiple calls from people saying they have been contacted by someone identifying themselves as a member of the Tulare County Sheriff's Office.
The caller appears to be replicating the sheriff's dispatch phone number to make it seem as if the call is actually coming from the Tulare County Sheriff's Office. Once on the line, the caller tells the person they have a warrant for their arrest and directs them to post bail using some type of cash app.
The Tulare County Sheriff's Office will never ask someone to pay bail using a cash app. This is a scam. If you are contacted by these individuals, do not send money. Instead contact your local law enforcement agency.
