Phone scam targeting Hamblen County citizens

The Hamblen County Sheriff's Office has issued a warning about a phone scam targeting people in the area. 

The person who receives the call are told they need to send a $1,000 money order because they've missed jury duty or other fake charges. 

The caller claims to be a Detective Cruz or Detective Hayes and the phone number they're calling from is 423-243-0641. However, the Sheriff's Office said it has no detectives by that name and isn't affiliated with that number. 

Authorities stress residents should not send any money if they receive a call from this phone scam.
