Daily Crime, Fraud, and Scam Reports

As a reminder, the Orange County Sheriff’s Office does not call citizens and solicit money to avoid being arrested. We are being notified of fraudulent calls again where individuals are claiming to be deputies from the Sheriff’s Office, requesting money to avoid arrest.

Additionally, the Sheriff’s Office is seeing a reoccurrence of scams where the scammer is sending individuals checks that they have the victim cash, keep a part of it and send the scammer the remaining funds. Please be cautions on social media platforms with individuals sending checks and asking for money to be sent back to them.
