From Cherokee Sheriff Office -- The Cherokee Sheriff's Office would like to remind citizens that under NO CIRCUMSTANCES will a Cherokee Sheriff's deputy contact them and request any payment for any reason. Deputies took three reports today in which a suspect called would be victims and identified himself as a specific deputy and explained to the person that they had an active warrant out for their arrest and gave instructions on how they could pay off the warrant. This is a scam. Any similar calls where someone claims to be a deputy and asks for money is also a scam. Please do not give the caller any personal information and should you receive a similar call we recommend you report it immediately.
