Livingston County Sheriff Scam

The Livingston County Sheriff's office recently learned that a Livingston resident received a voicemail from the published number of the Livingston County Sheriff's Office.

The anonymous caller spoke with a Middle Eastern accent and claimed to be Sheriff Steve Cox, notifying the recipient they had an outstanding arrest warrant. Livingston County Sheriff Steve Cox says the call was not made from his office and the person receiving the call did not have an outstanding warrant. Cox says there is cell phone technology that can allow a person to mask their phone number.
