Another phone scam attempting to get money from victims

The Kalamazoo County Sheriff Office received a report of an attempted fraud of a Portage

resident.  The potential victim reported that an unknown caller identified themselves as a member of the Kalamazoo County Sheriff's Office and told them they had pending charges for contempt of court, with a fine of $3600.00. 

 

The potential victim was told that they could pay this at the Sheriff's Office in Kalamazoo County.  The caller asked the victim to bring 2 pieces of identification along with the cash and meet them at the sheriff’s office after 6:00 PM.  The name that the caller gave was a real Law Enforcement person and the caller ID indicated the call was coming from the Sheriff’s Office.    The phone number on the caller ID was spoofed as an actual number for the Sheriff's Office.

 
Sheriff Fuller would like to make it clear to citizens that no law enforcement agency would contact someone asking them to bring cash to pay fines or charges and no law enforcement agency would ask someone to pay fines and costs afterhours.   

 

If a citizen receives a call like this, call your local law enforcement authority.
