For Immediate Release: 4/30/2015


The Rockingham County Sheriff’s Department has been alertedof a scam occurring in Rockingham County. Scammers are calling potential victims identifying themselves as an employee of the Department of Social Services. The scammer is stating the victim owes money, and if they do not pay the funds, they will be arrested.  The Rockingham County Division of Social Services number is being displayed on the caller ID, however, this is not the Social Services calling and the number they are requesting the individual to call to make the necessary payment is an 855 number.  Many of these calls appear to be Robo calls and are being initiated outside of the United States.

IF YOU ARE CONTACTED, PLEASE HANG UP IMMEDIATELY!  Social Service workers will not request you to pay anything over the phone.

If you have any concerns, please contact Social Services at 336-342-1394.
