Fake Calls Being Received in County


Today, 04 Feb 2021, the Washington County Sheriff’s Office received numerous complaints from the public that a subject was calling from 740-217-2365, stating he was Detective Davenport with our office (WCSO). The subject advised the citizens that a warrant would be obtained and they would be arrested if they did not purchase the green dot cards (or other cards) and give him the numbers associated with the cards.

This is a scam being put on by this subject and is is no way affiliated with the Washington County Sheriff’s Office. There also is no Davenport on staff at the Sheriff’s Office.

The Sheriff’s Office will never call and request you obtain money cards of any kind and produce the numbers associated with them.

Thank you and if you have any questions please feel free to call and confirm this information.
