FDLE has received reports of attempted scams targeting sexual offenders and predators involving a caller posing as a law enforcement officer and indicating that the sexual offender/predator has missing or out-of-date registration information. The caller directs the registrant to bring a gift or money card to a location other than the registration office in order to avoid arrest for failure to register. The caller may provide a call back number that appears to belong to local law enforcement’s registration office. If you receive such a call, you can report it to your local law enforcement agency directly. Click Here for contact numbers for law enforcement agencies around the state. FDLE does not have any additional information, please only contact your local law enforcement agency if you have been targeted.
