Dubuque Phone Scam

Local law enforcement is warning Dubuque area residents there is a new phone scam. The caller claims to be a law enforcement officer advising the victim missed jury duty and will need to post bond. The spoofed number is the main admin line number to the Dubuque County Sheriff’s Office. Just a reminder, unless the Sheriff’s office has prearranged something with your attorney, they do not call people to advise them they have a warrant. They also do not accept gift cards to pay for bond. Cash or surety bonds are the only acceptable methods of payment. If you are a Dubuque County resident and have fallen victim to this scheme, please call their non-emergency line at 563-589-4414. If you live in a neighboring area, please call your respective law enforcement agency.
