WARRANT CALL SCAM

WARRANT CALL SCAM
The Kenton County Sheriff’s Office has been notified that citizens are again receiving scam calls from persons identifying themselves as being with the Kenton County Sheriff’s Office. The scammer is able to mimic our true telephone number, the scammer says there is an active warrant for missing court and that the citizen can make arrangements over the phone with pre-paid credit cards or gift cards to “take care of” the warrant.
Remember - police agencies WILL NOT CALL YOU TO SAY YOU HAVE A WARRANT FOR YOUR ARREST. This is a SCAM. Do not respond to this type of threat. Do not engage these callers. Do not give them any type of information. HANG UP ON THEM!
To report continued contact from scammers please contact the Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron, Office of Consumer Protection at 888-432-9257.
