FOLEY -- The Benton County Sheriff's Office is alerting residents to another scam that is circulating around the area.

Residents are reporting callers who claim they are with the Benton County Sheriff's Office and are demanding payment and threatening arrest if the payment is not made.

Sheriff Troy Heck reminds everyone that they do not call citizens and demand payment for debt, warrants, or any other matter.

You should hang up, regardless of how convincing they sound and call the sheriff's office at 968-7201. This allows you to report the scam and ensure the sheriff's office is not behind the calls.
