Scammer Claims To Be A Deputy With Bedford County Sheriff's Office

The Bedford County Sheriff's Office has received numerous calls from citizens reporting that they have received a phone call or message on their voice mail from a person identifying himself as Deputy Mike Denton with their department.  

The caller tells the person to call 540-707-4070, Ext. 4.  When the person calls that number the caller receives an automated recording stating the caller has reached the Bedford County Sheriff's Office.  The callers enters Ext. 4 and a man answers the phone and identifies himself as Deputy Mike Denton.  The man instructs the caller to go and purchase a gift card and give him the number of the card over the phone. 

There is no one employed at the Bedford County Sheriff's Department named Mike Denton.  

This is a scam!
