MARION COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - Someone is making fraudulent calls claiming to be a Marion County Sheriff's Office deputy, and the MCSO wants to warn citizens that this is fake.

MCSO officials say they received reports that an individual claiming to be a deputy called citizens, and informed them that there was a warrant for their arrest. Citizens also reported the caller said they were with the DEA, and threatened to arrest residents for drug crimes.

This is a fraud, according to MCSO. Law enforcement officials stated the caller has not asked for money yet, but is attempting to get personal information.
