BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office says the call being made to area residents from someone claiming to be a Seargent, Detective, or Deputy in need of a signature is fraud.

“This is an imposter,” said PBSO in a statement. “The caller, at least in some of the calls, claims to be Sgt. Timothy McCann from the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s office. The imposter is advising the recipient of the call that he needs to speak with them regarding a confidential matter.”

The caller is using a callback number of 561-803-0412, although that number may change now that PBSO has outed the scam.

If you receive a call like this, PBSO asks you to hang up and call 911. The audio is below.
