    BREAKING NEWS: UPDATE: Sheriff: Suspect in Erica Smith murder committed suicide

    Leesburg Police warns of phone scams

    The Leesburg Police Department is investigating a series of complaints about people identifying themselves as law enforcement in order to intimate people extort money.

    In the first case, a victim was contacted by a person representing himself as a federal agent. The suspect told the victim he would face criminal charges unless money was sent via money gram to an address in the Dominican Republic.

    Another victim was told he owned back taxes by someone claiming to be a federal agent. The back taxes were requested in the form of pre-paid gift cards.

    The police are asking people to contact law enforcement if they feel they have been scammed.
