Shelby County Sheriff warning of phone scam

Phone scam warning

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office says it is getting reports that phone scammers are using their department as a cover again.

They're calling and identifying themselves as “Lt. Kevin Turner” who then accuses the person of not paying a traffic ticket.

The scammer then demands a payment. The sheriff’s office says they’ll never ask for a payment or personal information over the phone and advises people to just hang up.
