ATTENTION "SCAM ALERT" We have received several reports of a scam involving offenders listed on the Sex Offender Registry to obtain money and gift cards. Scammers claim to be law enforcement, and state that they have warrants for the offender's arrest if they do not provide a DNA sample and pay a fine.  DO NOT give these individuals any information over the phone.  Law enforcement agencies will not attempt to collect any form of payment over the phone.  Hang up and call the Paulding County Sheriff's Office at (770) 443-3010 or email us .
