Yesterday we got 3 notifications that they were scam targets. One would think that with enough complaints the FDLE would take measures to track these scammers down, but apparently they don’t.
This was from a member:
I wanted to let you know about a scam that has been targeting registrants. Recently I got a call from someone pretending to be a deputy of the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s office. They claimed that I had not registered, even though I had, and there was a warrant out for my arrest. I could avoid this by staying on the phone with them and going to purchase $750 worth of Google Play Gift Cards and send them money via that way. I knew then that this was not a real deputy and just a scammer. This is not real in any way and is a scam targeting SO’s. I thought I should alert you all so you could potentially get the word out and protect others from getting scammed in such a way.
All the best!
