Phone scam reaches Jasper Co


The phone scam we have been warning you all about for weeks, has reached Jasper County.

The sheriff's office say residents have received calls from someone pretending to be a deputy, telling folks that they have an outstanding warrant for their arrest, and the only way they can get out of it is by paying a fee: by using a green dot card.

The sheriff's office say that is not true, and that they would never notify anyone over the phone.

If you receive a call like this, you should hang up immediately and notify law enforcement.
