Several new fraud alerts issued to residents across Florida

Fox 35 Orlando

Between Facebook Marketplace, Zelle, and even traditional phone calls – scammers are preying on Florida residents.

With no end in sight when it comes to these meticulously thought-out scams, several sheriff's offices in Florida have issued fraud alerts hoping to bring awareness to a problem that has plagued people locally and internationally. 

Cryptocurrency scams

In a recent Facebook post, the Sarasota County Sheriff's Office warned residents about scams encouraging people to send cryptocurrency to repair computer viruses. Other scams involve someone "representing a government agency or law enforcement organization call and request" that the person provides cryptocurrency to satisfy a warrant, a fine, or to post a bond for a relative in jail or prison.
