Santa Barbara Sheriff's warn of circulating phone scam

Posted: Updated:

The Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office is warning people about a phone scam.

Officials have received reports of phone calls by someone claiming to be a sheriff's deputy.

The fake deputy tells the potential victim there is a warrant out for his or her arrest, then tries to get them to pay up to avoid being arrested.

Deputies say, if you get a call like this, do not give out any financial or personal information. You should hang up and report it immediately.
