WARREN CO., Ky. (WTVQ) –  The Warren County Sheriff’s Office is warning citizens of a scam in which people are claiming to be associated with the courts.

The sheriff says the suspect, or suspects, is calling to tell victims a court date has been missed. Once a human is on the line, the sheriff says they are stating they will hold a conference call with Tommy Loving, or they give a fake number to call him.

According to the sheriff, the suspect then states they are Tommy Loving, and will attempt to collect money for fines.

“I want all the citizens of Warren County to be aware of this scam and the other scams that exist to cause financial damage to people,” said Sheriff Jerry “Peanuts” Gaines. “Please don’t release your financial information to anyone over the telephone. The person or persons responsible for this scam has no affiliation with my office.”

The sheriff’s office says this is most certainly a scam. They say the court system will never call someone, asking for money.

The sheriff’s office urges citizens to be vigilant in safeguarding their financial information.
