Deputies warning public on imposter and phone scam

Bookmark and Share

The Logan County Sheriff’s Office is warning the public about a scam occurring in the county.

Phone ScamChief Deputy Richard Stephens says citizens are receiving telephone calls from an imposter claiming to be Deputy Fred Burns badge number 896 with the Logan County Sheriff’s Office. The imposter states that the calling party has missed a Jury Duty Subpoena and has an arrest warrant. The imposter demands that the victim’s pay for the warrant over the telephone.

The Sheriff’s Office says they do not employ any deputies that make collection calls for any reason and that the department does not employ a Deputy Burns. In addition, the Logan County Court Clerk does not issue arrest warrants for those who miss jury duty.

“Everything about this type of incident is a scam,” Stephens said.

If you receive a telephone call of this type, do not make any payment, or provide any type of personal information. Contact the Logan County Sheriff’s Office if you have been victimized by this or any other scam in Logan County (405) 260-3204.

    I’m amazed at the variety of phone scams reported to Callercenter.com everyday. They give me the impression that these phone scammers are hardworking people. So don’t let them get you. Be proactive in learning about them and their schemes. Read updates and be familiar with the phone numbers they used. Don’t give them a chance to steal your hard-earned money.
