Green Dot Phone Scam

Several complaints have been received by the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office over the last few days involving a scam. The complainants state they received a phone call from a male identifying himself as Lt. Blackmon with the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office Fugitive Division. He advised them they had a warrant on file with the Sheriff’s Office for their arrest but they could pay a fee to solve the issue. He directed them to go to an area Wal Mart and purchase a green dot card for an amount of money, then call him back at a phone number he gave them.
