CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — The Chesterfield County Sheriff’s Office is warning residents of a deputy impersonator calling people asking for prepaid cards in exchange to drop warrants.
This comes after the sheriff’s office received a call from a resident who said they received a call from a deputy asking for prepaid cards to make charges go away.
“The Chesterfield County Sheriff’s Office will NEVER instruct a person to pay money to make a charge “go away,” CCSO wrote on Facebook.
