Scam Calls with Sheriff’s Office Phone Number Occurring

Oct 11, 2018 01:45PM ● By Editor
October 11, 2018 – The Cook County Sheriff’s Office has received reports that local residents are receiving telephone calls with a pre-recorded message offering pain relief bracelets, originating from the non-emergency Sheriff’s office 218-387-3030 telephone number.
The Sheriff’s Office is not making these calls, nor does it offer any type of sales of products. Like other telephone scam calls, the caller has obtained a way to mask the call with a local phone number. If you receive this call, simply hang up and do not follow any instructions on the pre-recorded message and never give out financial information to any suspicious caller over the phone
