Woodford County Phone Scam Warning

Woodford Sheriff
The Woodford County Sheriff’s Office is warning people about a phone scam making the rounds.

People have been receiving calls from someone claiming to be "Sergeant Owens" from the sheriff’s office, telling them they’ve failed to report for jury duty.

The scammer then says an arrest warrant has been issued, but can be waived after paying a 4-thousand dollar fine.

The sheriff’s office says they will *never* tell you to pay a fine over the phone.

If you receive a call like this, they ask that you note the number and any name the caller may give you, and contact them immediately.
