Vernon County Sheriff Warns of Another Phone Scam

Vernon County Sheriff

The Vernon County Sheriff’s Office has received multiple reports of citizens receiving phone calls from someone claiming to be Detectives or Deputies with the Vernon County Sheriff’s Office and telling people that they have a warrant for their arrest. The caller is advising the public that if they give personal information or money to pay for the warrant over the phone, then they will not be arrested.
THIS IS A SCAM!!!

The Sheriff’s Office does not handle warrants over the phone. If you receive a call like this, please do not give any money or personal information over the phone, hang up and dial the non-emergency number at 417-667-6042 to report it to the Sheriff’s Office.
