Douglas County Sheriff warns of scam

WENATCHEE – Douglas County Sheriff Kevin Morris said his office has received two separate reports regarding local and out-of-area victims receiving phone calls from subjects posing as employees of his office.
The victims on both incidents reported being told they failed to appear for assigned court appearances and they needed to report to the courts to verify their identities and provide signatures,” said Morris. “In both incidents, the victims reported the phone calls they received were from the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office business phone line.”
 Morris reminds citizens that the DCSO will not contact anyone by phone making these types of notifications and/or requests.
“Be aware of all the various types of telephone scams which are currently in circulation and do not disclose your personal information to anyone you do not know,” said Morris. “Please continue to report all scam related incidents to the appropriate law enforcement agencies.”
