AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) -

The Potter County Sheriff’s Office is warning residents not to fall victim to the town's latest phone scam. 

On Nov. 17, the Potter County Sheriff’s Office received a call from a county resident about a phone call left on his answering machine.

The caller identified himself as Deputy Wayne Taylor from the Potter County Sheriff’s Office, Warrant and Citation Division.

He left a message for the resident to contact him because he had some legal documentation for him, but did not leave a return phone number. 

Potter County Sheriff’s Office does not have anyone named Wayne Taylor employed as a deputy.

If anyone receives phone calls of this nature, they should call the sheriff's office at 806-379-2900 and ask for a supervisor.

Deputies want to remind residents they should not meeting with the caller to give them money or give any personal information to them over the phone.

The Potter County Sheriff’s Office does not call resident to ask for any type of monetary payment. 

They have offices, other than the Sheriff’s Office, that handle payment arrangements for such things.
