The Franklin County Sheriff's Office would like to make all citizens aware of a scam going on in surrounding counties, officials said. 

"People are approaching citizens as Census takers when in fact they are not," sheriff's department officials said. 

"Legitimate Census workers will have a federal identification and a bag that says Census worker on it. If someone approaches your residence and identifies as a Census worker and does not have these items in their possession please contact your local authorities immediately."
