The Macomb County Sheriff's Office says they have received multiple reports of citizens getting phone calls from scammers soliciting money.

The call comes from the phone number 586-484-4598 with the caller claiming to be the Civil Division at the sheriff's office. 

"The caller is acting fraudulently and is not affiliated with the Macomb County Sheriff's Office," said Sheriff Anthony Wickersham.

Wickersham is reminding the public to never give personal or financial information over the telephone or to someone you don't know. 

Macomb County Sheriff's Office detectives are investigating the complaints.
