Phone Scam Alert

This weekend the Sheriff's Office received numerous reports of a phone scam in the area. Callers pretend to be the Sheriff's Office and say a fine needs to be paid, or they have a warrant, or they they will be arrested. As a reminder the Sheriff’s Office does not call citizens about warrants or ask to pay anything in prepaid cards. These phone scams pop up periodically in our area - if you get a phone call as described above, or believe you may be being scammed in another manner, report the scam attempt to your local law enforcement agency and to the Illinois Attorney General's Office.
