ARDMORE, OK -- Investigators at the Carter County Sheriff's Office are warning others of a phone scam involving a fake deputy .

Sheriff Milton Anthony says his office has received several reports over the weekend of a man posing as a Carter County sheriff's deputy telling people who live in the area to purchase green dot cards or be put under arrest.

The sheriff says real deputies would never call and ask for money.

"They're indicating themselves to be a deputy, which is impersonation of a deputy or police officer and I don't take that lightly," said Sheriff Anthony.

The sheriff says the scammer's call will appear to be from a local number on your phone.

If you are contacted by the fake deputy, call the Carter County Sheriff's Office.
