Scam Alert!


The Creek County Sheriff's Office has received multiple complaints of a renewed scam. Scammers are pretending to be Creek County deputies, other law enforcement officers, or a federal agency. These scammers are threatening citizens with false "failure to appear" or "register" warrants. Scammers often use the names of actual deputies or police officers and may disguise (spoof) their phone number to make it look like they are calling from a local law enforcement agency. These phone calls are not from the Sheriff's Office or other law enforcement agencies.
Scammers will often ask you to pay in a way that makes it hard for you to get your money back - by wiring money, putting money on a gift card, prepaid card or cash reload card, or using a money transfer app. Anyone who asks you to pay that way is a scammer.
You should not provide the caller with any personal information, credit card numbers, pre-paid card numbers, or money.
