Scammer posing as sheriff's deputy
01/13/2022

(KNZA)--A scammer is calling residents in Jackson County, claiming they need to pay up to avoid arrest.

Jackson County Sheriff Tim Morse said his office received a number of reports of the scam Wednesday.

He said the scammers identify themselves as a sheriff’s deputy. They tell the person they have a warrant, and need to make a payment over the phone to resolve it.

Morse says it’s a scam to get personal information to steal your money. He said the Jackson Co. Sheriff’s Office will not call people to resolve warrants this way.

Anyone who receives such a call should not give any personal or banking information, and should contact law enforcement.
