The Citrus County Sheriff’s Office wants Citrus County residents to be aware of an active scam.

A caller is contacting citizens by phone claiming to be a representative with the Citrus County Warrants Division.

The caller then tells the residents that he or she has an active warrant and must pay a fine to avoid being arrested.


Officials with the CCSO said that the agency would not use these methods.

If a resident receives this type of call you should report it immediately to the CCSO by calling 352-726-1121.
