The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office has received numerous reports from citizens in the area being targeted by scammers claiming to represent the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office and telling residents they have outstanding warrants for not showing up for jury duty.
Victims are continuing to receive phone calls from what shows up on Caller ID as the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office. It also may show up as a local landline number or cell phone number. Residents are then informed there are arrest warrants in their name for failure to appear for jury duty.
In the latest calls received by some residents the caller states he is Lt. Alan Bradford of the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office. (LCSO does not have an employee by that name) He informs the resident that they have outstanding warrants for failure to appear and contempt of court charges for not showing up for jury duty.
He threatens the victim with having a deputy come to his house and arrest him or he could buy Google Play Cards, scratch the covering off the number on the card and send it to him. One victim did so and is out $1,000. A second victim was scammed by the same caller which resulted in a loss of $1,500. Scammers are using correct terminology and are very convincing when speaking to victims.
The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office advises all citizens this is scam. The sheriff’s office does not accept money to cancel a warrant or an order for arrest. All warrants are served in person and not by telephone. Citizens should not provide any personal identifying information over the phone, purchase any money cards and give the card number to the caller.
