The Odessa Police Department has recently received several complaints in reference to a scam involving criminal investigations. Citizens have reported receiving calls from someone pretending to be Lieutenant Sherrie Carruth. The calls are transferred to a foreign call center. They claim the citizen is under investigation and in order to get it resolved, they’ll need to pay.
At no time will OPD ever ask for money in this manner. Should anyone receive a call from this person, simply hang up and do not provide any personal information. To report these scams, please call 432-335-4961.
