Jefferson County Sheriff's Office: Phone scam involves person falsely identifying as deputy
KFDM News learned the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office received numerous complaints Friday about a person calling elderly residents and identifying himself as a member of the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office.
The caller is identifying himself as Lt. William Hall, Badge #9937, a news release stated.
He is telling the people he calls that they have an outstanding arrest warrant for failure to appear for jury duty, the release stated.
The caller states that unless the person makes payment within the hour, he will come to their residence and arrest them, according to the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office.
The caller advises that payment must be made via money order in the amount of $100.
The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office says it does not have Lt. William Holder employed within its organization, and that this is a phone scam targeting elderly residents.
