Scam Calls Again Claim To Be From DCSO

BEND, OR -- Several Central Oregonians received calls Friday from someone claiming to be from the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office, demanding payment to clear up a warrant issued after the person missed jury duty. In at least one case, the caller said the warrant could be cleared with pre-paid gift cards.

DCSO reminds everyone this is a common scam. Law enforcement never asks for phone payment to clear up a legal matter. If someone has a warrant, an officer or deputy will likely visit in person with the proper credentials. 

Anyone who receives a call from an unfamiliar person asking for money whould be skeptical of the person's legitimacy.
