A new scam has surfaced and this time the scam artists are targeting sexual offenders.
Two local individuals have already contacted the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office in reference to the scheme. They say they received calls today informing them they had a warrant and needed to provide money. They were told to take the cash to the OCSO’s North District or Brackin Office in Crestview, and not to bring anyone along.
One person was actually on the phone with the scammer as he went into the Brackin Office earlier today.
Additional details are still being gathered at the current time.
