WCSO warns of a scam reported in the county

Warren County Sheriff's Office

The Warren County Sheriff’s Office (WCSO) reports receiving calls about an individual placing calls and impersonating an actual Warren County Deputy.

Once again the scammer will tell the intended victim that they have missed jury duty and must pay a fine using a gift card to avoid arrest.

No law enforcement agency anywhere will ever contact you in this manner.

If you receive a call like this hang up and call your respective law enforcement agency in your region.

You can make that call to both report the incident and or verify its authenticity if you wish.

The WCSO ask that you spread this word to protect those family members and friends who might be venerable to such a scam.
