HARRISON COUNTY, Miss. (WLOX) - The Harrison County Sheriff’s Office is warning residents about a scam from someone claiming to work for the sheriff’s office.

The office says they received complaints in the last week of an unknown subject making calls from a blocked number. The caller states the person receiving the call has old fines due, and, in order to avoid being arrested, he or she needs to provide a debit or credit card number and other personal information.

The Harrison County Sheriff’s Office does not make these calls. If you receive a call relating or similar to this information, you can report it at 228-896-0678.
