Police Warn Residents of Phone Scam

Posted 11-22-22.

The Sevierville Police Department is warning residents of an ongoing telephone scam where the caller is claiming to represent a law enforcement officer and demanding payment for fines be completed over the phone. Neither the Sevierville Police Department, Sevier County court system or Sevier County Sheriff’s Office contacts persons requesting or directing payments to be made of any type over the phone.

Citizens are reminded to never provide sensitive personal or financial information over the phone, by email or the internet, or to comply with demands for payment, until they have confirmed the authenticity of the request.
