Scam Warning from the Tennessee Sheriffs’ Association

The Tennessee Sheriffs’ Association (TSA) issued a scam alert warning of a phone scam using the organization’s name.

TSA says it’s been notified someone is calling people in their name and soliciting money. The organization says their renewal period is now, but TSA will never call and ask for money.

The association shared these tips for if you receive a call:

TSA may call if there’s a problem with your payment. Check the number calling to confirm it’s the TSA main office number (615) 547-0277.

Report it to your local Sheriff’s Office

The TSA does not like taking payments over the phone. All renewals can be done on the Tennessee Sheriffs’ Association website.
