      Captain Craig Dodd, chief investigator of the Dougherty County Sheriff's Office, held a press conference Tuesday morning to warn the public of a scam.

      Dodd says there is a man calling from the number 229-376-2339 and claiming to be from Mediacom. He's telling residents they haven't paid their bill in full and will be fined if they don't pay it immediately by credit card over the phone.

      Dodd assured FOX 31 they are very close to catching this man but in the meantime if you receive a call from this number you need to call the Sheriff's office right away.
