• Don't answer a call from a number you do not recognize. Instead, let it go to voice mail and listen to it later.
  • Robocallers are used to verify that your number works, which opens you up to receiving other scam calls.
  • If you do answer and it's a robocaller or believe it to be a scam, just hang up without saying anything. Don't press any buttons or give any information.

As an additional reminder, the Dyer County Sheriff's Office will never:

  • Call to demand immediate payment over the telephone.
  • Call or email you to verify your identity by asking for personal or financial information.
  • Ask for your credit or debit card numbers over the telephone or email.
  • Demand that you meet someone to make a payment away from the window at the Sheriff's office or police dept.

To report fraud calls of this type, contact your local law enforcement agency or call the Dyer County Sheriff's Office at 731-285-2802, press option 1 for Dispatch.
