Cobb authorities warn of scammers acting like cops asking for money

Acworth police want you to know about a scam of someone pretending to be a cop demanding money for an outstanding warrant.

The department posted on Facebook that a resident notified them Wednesday saying they had gotten the call.

The resident said the caller identified themselves as an Acworth police sergeant and “threatened the citizen with arrest” if payment wasn’t made.
