ST. TAMMANY PARISH, LA (WVUE) -

St. Tammany Parish residents might be receiving calls from individuals who are falsely claiming to be with the sheriff’s office.

The STPSO wants people in the parish to know it is a scam.

“If you receive a call from someone claiming to be with the Sheriff’s Office and want to verify the validity of the call, hang up and call us directly back,” a post on the sheriff’s Facebook said.

You can reach them at 985-809-8200 or 985-726-8000.

“Do not give out personal information over the phone and remember, the sheriff’s office does not call to collect money over the phone,” the post said.
