Norfolk Sheriff's Office Warns Residents of Scam Calls

NORFOLK, VA — The Norfolk Sheriff’s Office is warning residents about a new scam call impersonating Norfolk Sheriff's Office Staff.
 
On Monday, September 9th a local resident reported receiving a call from the “Norfolk Sheriff’s Department Sex Offender Registry.” The caller reportedly stated there were warrants out for the person’s arrest – unless the person brought $1000 to the jail to pay for a “bond.” 
 
The caller identified himself as an actual employee of the Norfolk Sheriff’s Office. 
 
This is a scam. 
 
We do not maintain a sex offender registry. Most importantly, we would never demand a cash payment over the phone.
 
The Norfolk Sheriff’s Office believes this scam has been going on for at least a week. If you receive a call similar to this, please notify the Norfolk Police Department Economic Crimes unit at (757) 664-7018.
