Berrien County Sheriff's Office warns of scam caller

BERRIEN COUNTY, Mich. -- The Berrien County Sherriff's Office is warning the public to be wary of scam callers pretending to be the sheriff's office.

According to officials, caller ID will show the sheriff department's name and number, or a similar number.

The scam calls will state that the person being called has a warrant for their arrest and that bond money is owed immediately, which is false. 

Deputies say to just hang up the phone if you receive a call that matches or is similar to the description.

The sheriff's office also provided a link to a video that explains this kind of scam, also known as spoofing.
