Released By Osceola County Sheriff’s Office
Detectives with the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office have been receiving complaints regarding suspicious phone calls.
The victims appear to have been selected from our sexual offender registration. The suspect (caller) identifies themselves as an administrator of the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office. They have identified themselves as Captain Jeff Curtis and Major Kevin McGinley. The suspect tells the victims that they have been sent an address verification form from USDOJ ordering them to appear in court in order to take DNA from them. The suspect further informs that this information is being collected for President Trump’s Federal Registry. The suspect tells the victim that he/she has a warrant for failure to appear, on the requested date, and must settle the warrant by taking advantage of the “Smart Program.” The suspect requests money be sent directly to an account in order to settle the dispute.
The Osceola County Sheriff’s Office does not have a program such as this and encourages anyone that receives a call from someone collecting money for criminal clemency or simply to verify the identity of a caller claiming to be an agency member to contact the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office at (407) 348-2222.
The Osceola County Sheriff’s Office is dedicated to serving our community and increasing public safety. Anyone with information related to this case or any other similar incidents, please contact the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office at (407) 348-2222.
