According to a press release, several people have received these calls.
claiming to be “Deputy Moore” from our office. “Deputy Moore” claims to have warrants for these citizens that they need to pay him for over the phone.
BCSO says please be aware that this is a scam. First of all, they have no deputies with the last name of "Moore".
Second, the number they are calling from is (903) 949-3092 which is not the Bowie County Sheriff's number. Officials are saying that this is a 'spoofed' phone number. Do not call it back.
