BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office is again warning the public that someone is posing as a Deputy and demanding money or personal information.

Here is the official advisory from PBSO:

BEWARE … there is an imposter calling members of the community and claiming to be a deputy (Capt. Patrick Johnson or Lt. Michael Gauger) from the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.  This imposter is advising the recipient of the call that he/she or a member of their family has a warrant for their arrest. 

The imposter goes on to say that the warrant can be rectified by a dollar amount.  The imposter threatens to send a deputy to the residents home to affect an arrest if he/she does not comply.  

THIS IS A SCAM!  PBSO Employees DO NOT CALL for Money or Personal Information. 

If you receive a call like this or any other SCAM HANG UP and CALL 911!
