BSO Identifies Phone Scam Suspects, Calls On Victims To Come Forward

A well-documented phone scam has resurfaced in Broward County, and the Broward Sheriff’s Office is notifying residents of suspects who were identified after a rash of calls involving this scam occurred in Broward County in early September. The scam involved callers impersonating actual BSO deputies, requesting money and threatening arrest for “active” warrants that didn’t exist if the money wasn’t paid.
