The Bedford County Sheriff’s Office is warning citizens of a phone scam in the area. The caller claims to be from the dispatch center and is in need of personal information.

Do not give out any personal information over the phone. The number that appears on caller ID may appear legitimate, but it is not.

If you receive such a call, hang up. If in doubt, call the Bedford Dispatch Center’s non-emergency number at 540-586-7827 to verify.
