GRAY COUNTY -- Gray County Sheriff's Office is warning residents of a possible scam.
If someone calls you and says you must send them money to pay a fine or go to jail, chances are 99.9 percent that its a scam. Joe Hoard, chief deputy for the Gray County Sheriffs Office, said his agency has received about three or four complaints this week of residents who were told by a caller that they must send a personal check to pay a fine, or the caller will obtain a warrant for their arrest.
The calls are coming from the 312 area code, which is Chicago.
This is similar to other scams that have been reported in the news recently.Hoard said GCSO does not call people when they have unpaid fines and a valid warrant.
Hoard said the scammers seem to be preying on elderly people.
If you receive such a call, contact GCSO at 806-669-8022.
