Scam Alert in Suwannee County

Suwannee County Sheriff's Office

SCAM ALERT!

Right now there is a scam happening in Live Oak where citizens are receiving phone calls from 386-362-2222 which is the Suwannee County Sheriff's Office main number.

The caller is telling people that they failed to show up for jury duty or they failed to pay a fine and are demanding that people send money.

The caller has also done some research on one of our victims and knew where she and her husband worked. This information was probably gathered via Facebook and a Google search.

Unfortunately, with modern technology, it is possible for these fraudsters to manipulate their caller ID information to make it appear that they are a legitimate business.

The Suwannee County Sheriff's Office will never call a citizen and demand money.
