MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WKRN) — Rutherford County officials are warning the public after a reported telephone scammer in the area.

Officials warn the public to never give out personal information to someone who calls.

The sheriff’s office says they will never call citizens to ask for money, especially in return of missing a court date.
