On 11/26/22 2 reports were received by our office in regards to local area victims receiving phone calls from subjects claiming to be Douglas County Sheriff’s Office Deputies from the Warrants Department. These calls were an attempt to solicit money in the form of gift cards to avoid an arrest. The caller also attempted to solicit personal information. This is a scam.
We continue to ask citizens to be aware of all the various types of telephone scams which are currently in circulation and do not disclose your personal information, or pay money to anyone you do not know. Please continue to report all scam related incidents to the appropriate law enforcement agencies.
