Phone scam reaches Jasper Co

Posted: Updated:

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.
