VERY IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT!!! SCAM ALERT - We have receive a phone call from a local resident reporting to us she had received a phone call (caller ID even showed FRANKLIN COUNTY COURTHOUSE and used the county phone number) The person said they were from the FRANKLIN COUNTY CLERK'S OFFICE and the person owed money for a loan and to call a 972 phone number. WE DO NOT CALL requesting payments so please do not fall for this scam. If you receive a phone call like this, please report it to the Franklin County Sheriff's Office 903-537-4539.
