Sheriff’s Office number may be spoofed

The Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office received a call from a resident to let it know that someone may be spoofing the main office phone number. The resident said a message that supposedly came from 941-639-2101, which is the main administrative number for the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office. The message asked the resident to call back at a different phone number with an entirely different area code. The resident was suspicious and did not call the number back so the Sheriff’s Office does not know what the caller was trying to accomplish. Even though 941-639-2101 is legitimately the Sheriff’s Office’s main phone number, when calls are made from the administrative building, the caller ID for those lines should show as private, unknown or unavailable.
