ECTOR COUNTY - There's a scam going around Ector County we want to warn you about.

Someone's calling people claiming to be with the sheriff's office.

They say a warrant has been issued for either not paying a ticket or a traffic violation.

They then tell the person they need to go to a grocery store and get a voucher with a telephone on it and that the voucher would have instructions on how to pay the fine.

If you get a call like this, don't fall for it.

The sheriff's office says they do not call people regarding paying warrants.

If you do get a call like this, call the sheriff's office.
