Sheriff's office target of scam calls

Think twice before you give your financial information over the phone to someone saying they are a part of the Door County Sheriff’s Department. The department said on Monday that they had been made aware of a series of phone calls from individuals posing as Door County Law Enforcement. Specifically, one caller posed as a Sergeant with the Door County Sheriff’s Department. To make matters worse for possible scam targets, the caller ID shows the department’s general office number while the caller says they did not show up for court and face fines. The Door County Sheriff’s Department reminds you that they never call to request you pay fines or demand that you go to the bank. They also urge you to be cautious when someone asks for money or information over the phone. According to app producer Truecaller, an estimated 70 million Americans lost money to phone scams in 2022, making off with $40 billion along the way.
