Sheriff's Department used in phone scam

There is no Deputy Johnson at the Door County Sheriff’s Department and that is just where a recent phone scam targeting residents begins. The department announced Thursday evening it had received two complaints about a person calling from 920-695-3028 operating under the pseudonym saying there are outstanding warrants for their arrest if they do not post bail. Field Lieutenant Brad Shorteed reminds people the Sheriff’s Department does not conduct business that way.

Shorteed urges people to remain vigilant, not give out personal information, and to contact the dispatch center if other calls from the scammer are received. He added that since they made the initial announcement that there have been no other complaints, but the scammer has also not been tracked down.
