SHALIMAR, May 7, 2018–The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office Crime Prevention Unit has re-established its Fraud Hotline.
The information is used by Crime Prevention to keep tabs on what scams are circulating and to glean information for public advisories to help spread the word.
The hope is that awareness will help prevent residents from falling for the ruses, according to the OCSO.
Local residents can report scam/fraud attempts at 850-651-7674.
Anyone who is an actual victim of a scam and wants to file a report with the OCSO should call 850-651-7400 or 850-689-5705.
