Potter County Sheriff’s Office became aware of a scam attempt on Friday.

An Amarillo community member called to ask if a warrant was issued for their arrest.

It didn’t take long, however, to gather that a scam attempt was being made after the individual claimed to be Sgt. John Frey, a current employee of the Sheriff’s office, stating the outstanding warrant be paid by cash or gift cards.

The Potter County Sheriff’s Office will never contact anyone to make them pay for getting out of a warrant or ever ask a member of this community for cash or meet with them to get cash.

Be on the lookout for this scam by contacting the Potter County Sheriff’s Office at 806-379-2900 to verify any questions you may have.
