Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office Scam Alert
Sheriff Norman would like to alert the public about a potential scam that is circulating in our community involving home security systems. 
Citizens may receive a telephone call promoting home security systems, offering discounts and reduced pricing.  The caller may request an appointment to install the security system and ask for pertinent information such as name, address, social security number and date of birth.  The caller then schedules an appointment and provides false call-back telephone numbers. 
They claim to be legitimate security system providers, such as GE or a security system through the FBI. 
Sheriff Norman wants the public to be advised that this is a scam and to never, ever give out your social security number or date of birth over the phone.  If you receive one of these phone calls regarding the home security installation, please don’t hesitate to call the Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office at (704) 484-4788.
