Albemarle County police on Monday warned of a phone scam in which a caller identifies himself as Capt. Darrell Byers of the county police.
The caller says there is a warrant for the arrest of the person who answers, but that the matter also could be resolved through a wire transfer of funds. Two people contacted the department to report the scam on Monday, according to a news release.
The Albemarle County Police Department does not contact individuals for wire transfers. Anyone receiving such a call should hang up and call county police at (434) 977-9041 to report the call.
