Jo Daviess Phone Scam

Jo Daviess County Sheriff Kevin Turner is warning the public of a new scam. The caller telephones a resident and spoofs the phone number 815-777-9284 which belongs to Jo Daviess County Sheriff’s Office. The caller then says they are calling from the county’s  Civil Process Division. The caller asks when the resident will be home as they need to deliver some civil process paperwork. The calls are NOT originating from anyone at Jo Daviess County Sheriff’s Office. Sheriff Turner urges the public to exercise extreme caution if you receive telephone calls of this nature, and to hang up the phone or do not answer if the number is not familiar. If anyone has experienced this, or a similar scam, please contact the Jo Daviess County Sheriff’s Office or your local police department.
