Gallatin County Sheriff’s Office has received a number of complaints from you about a possible scam.

Here's how it works: The caller informs the person who answers that they have criminal charges pending and then says to send money for these charges to be stopped. The Caller ID indicates the phone number is 406-582-2125. Although this number is the number to the Sheriff’s Office, it is a scam.

These phone calls are not originating from the sheriff’s office. Please do not respond to their requests.
