SPOKANE COUNTY--The Spokane County Sheriff’s Office wanted to warn citizens of a possible telephone scam on Monday.
Deputies said a South Hill resident received a phone call from a man who said he was an officer and claimed the resident had warrants for her arrest. That was not true, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
This type of scam has happened locally and nationwide for some time, according to the Sheriff’s Office. They said the caller requests credit card information in return for making the warrant go away. They added that law enforcement does not call people with warrants requesting payment over the phone to take care of their legal issues.
If you receive a call similar to this please report it to Crime Check at 509-456-2233.
