Bibb County Sheriff’s Office warns residents of phone scam

MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – The Bibb County Sheriff’s Office is warning residents to watch out for a phone scam that impersonates their office.

According to several victims the calls are coming from an Augusta phone number.

Callers are demanding payments for warrants, tickets or other court matters. Victims are asked to purchase a “green-dot” card or other methods to pay the fine. The scam artist asks for the victim to provide the card number.

Deputies arrested 21-year-old Tevin Johnson, 23-year-old Latoria Gibson and 24-year Willie Johnson Jr. back in March for receiving financial gain through a similar scam.

Anyone who believes they are a victim to this scam is asked to call the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office at 478-751-7500.
