Beware of Local “Warrant Scam”
The Monroe County Sheriff's Office is warning residents of a "warrant" scam, according to a press release sent by the office.
The Sheriff's Office says it received several phone calls from residents who were receiving phone calls from a man saying "I am with the Monroe County Warrant Division and a warrant has been issued for your arrest because you have failed to pay a claim filed against you."
The Sheriff's Office says that the caller also says that if the resident pays a certain amount of the "fine," the warrant will go away. The caller has requested as much as $1,500.
The Sheriff's Office said it does not conduct business over the phone and that these calls are scams.
The Sheriff's Office is asking anyone who receives a suspicious call to note the telephone number of the caller if you have an ID System, to document the conversation and to hang up without giving the caller any personal information. Then call the Monroe County Sheriff's Office at 570-517-3303.
