LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office is warning residents to be aware of a recent phone scam involving someone identifying himself as a captain from the agency telling victims they have a warrant or fine that needs to be paid over the phone.

An office spokesman says the caller identifies himself as “Capt. Jim Dixon” with the agency, which matches the name and rank of an actual employee there. The scammer has also set up a voicemail set to answer as the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office Warrants Division.

Spokesman Carl Minden says the agency doesn’t collect fines and the office doesn’t take credit or debit cards for any services it offers.

The sheriff’s office says anyone who receives a call of that nature should contact local authorities.
