McDowell Co. Sheriff's Office warns of scam

Posted: Updated:
MARION, NC (FOX Carolina) -

The McDowell County Sheriff's Office is warning the community of a scam making its way around the area.

Deputies said the scam involves a caller saying your family member is in trouble with the law and they either need money to get out of jail or to pay for damages.

Capt. Shanon Smith said the community should never send money in these cases but should call the relative to see if they need assistance.
