The Roswell Police Department is warning residents of two phone scammers who are calling Roswell residents.

There have been multiple reports that a man identifying himself as a Fulton County sheriff’s deputy has been calling victims telling them there is a warrant for their arrest for speeding through the toll booth on Ga. 400 and demanding payment over the phone. He tells the victims the warrant will be voided if they pay a fine by credit card or money order.

This is a scam. The police department or sheriff’s office would never call for a payment. The police department is instructing residents not to give out credit card information, bank account numbers or purchase money orders.

The city is also warning of an individual who has called residents demanding payment for water or sanitation services. The caller gives a badge number of #572113 and is telling residents if payment is not made, their utilities will be turned off Monday morning.

The caller ID on these calls shows up as “Private Name.”

This individual is not a representative from the city of Roswell.

Any residents receiving these calls should immediately report them to the Roswell Police Department at (770) 640-4100.

Residents with any questions about tickets, fines or traffic court questions should contact the city court services at (770) 641-3790.

Should residents have questions about their utility services, please contact the city at (770) 641-3759.
