Jo Daviess Phone Scam

Jo Daviess County Sheriff Kevin Turner is warning the public about a new telephone scam occurring in Jo Daviess County. The caller telephones a resident and spoofs the phone number 777-2141 which belongs to Jo Daviess County Sheriff’s Office. The caller then says they are calling from the Jo Daviess County Sheriff’s Office and tells the resident they need to obtain a gift card and forward the card number to the caller. The calls are NOT originating from anyone at Jo Daviess County Sheriff’s Office. If anyone has experienced this, or a similar scam, please contact the Jo Daviess County Sheriff’s Office, or your local police department.
