Suspects Pose as DCF Investigators in Fla.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Authorities are investigating after suspects pretended to be child protective investigators in three separate cases this month.

On January 9, a woman posted on a man’s Facebook page that she was investigating allegations that his child was being neglected and didn’t have enough food. She told the man she needed to see him.

In another case, a woman reported a man from Department of Children and Families said he received a report that she was a drug dealer and needed to visit her.

Last week, a man told officials that a woman claiming to be a DCF investigator left him a voicemail.

In each case, DCF did not have active investigations on the families.

DCF officials say investigators will never post allegations on public websites and must produce proper credentials.
