Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office reminds residents to be cautious of phone scams demanding money
The Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office reminds residents that it will never contact citizens to tell them they have missed jury duty or have a warrant for their arrest. Phone scams like this have circulated the region for years now, and Sullivan County officials urge the public to be wary of these calls.
They go on to say that no law enforcement agency will contact a citizen to collect money in order to avoid incarceration. If someone receives a suspicious call such as this, they are encouraged to contact the organization being represented to confirm the call’s legitimacy before paying any money.
