MCLENNAN COUNTY, Texas — The McLennan County Sheriff's Office said a local scam involving their likeness is running once again.

Authorities claim a scammer is impersonating as a sheriff's office employee and are demanding money.

The sheriff's office said they are using multiple reasons as to why the individual contacted needs to pay, mostly regarding fees.

The scam is being done via phone call, authorities said.

The sheriff's office stressed they will never call anyone and request money.

The amount of money being demanded was not disclosed.

Those who have been contacted are urged to report to the McLennan County's dispatch at (254)-757-5222 or contact 911.
