Charlevoix County Sheriff Warns of New Scam Targeting Michigan Sex Offenders

The Charlevoix County Sheriff’s Office has received several phone calls regarding a new scam pertaining to the Michigan Sex Offender Registry.

The caller is reporting to be a Sergeant from the Sheriff’s Office and is calling registered sex offenders.

The caller advises them that they have violated the sex offender registry and have an active warrant for their arrest.

The caller tells the people they must pay money with prepaid debit cars to clear up the warrant.

The Charlevoix County Sheriff’s Office will never request money over the phone, nor will any other police agency.

If you think you are a victim of this scam, call the Charlevoix County Sheriff’s Office at 231-547-4461 or your local law enforcement agency.
