Warrant scam recirculates locally

(KMZA)--A classic scam recirculates, with the caller making threats of an arrest in an attempt to gain financial information from would be victims.

Nemaha County Sheriff Rich Vernon tells MSC News his office has received reports from residents who have recently received the phone calls. "This is a scam involving people pretending to be from the federal government, telling you that you have a warrant, and wanting you to pay them on the phone to get rid of the warrant. The federal government will never call you, they will not call you and tell you you have a warrant, this will never happen."

Vernon says callers asking for gift cards as payment should be an immediate red flag. "That is not something that is normally done, and is their way of getting the money untraceable.”

If this, or any similar call is received, Vernon says to provide no information and to hang up in order to keep from falling victim.
