DCSO Warns of New Phone Scam
The Dubuque County Sheriff’s Office is warning residents to be on alert for a new phone scam. The scammer is claiming to represent the sheriff’s department and tells potential victims there a civil process that needs to be taken care of right away. They then give potential victims a phone number to call to resolve the issue. But the sheriff’s office says do not call the number. It is not associated with the department. The sheriff’s office is asking anyone living within the county who receives one of the calls to contact their office. Those outside the county can contact local law enforcement.
