Vernon County Sheriff’s Office Scam Alert

The Vernon County Sheriff’s Office is warning the community of an active Apple scam. The call will most likely appear to be from Apple, but it is a spoofed number, 800-275-2273, to appear legitimate, but it is not!

The caller will say there is a problem with your Apple account. This is a phishing attempt; a scam! Do not push any buttons. Just hang-up.

If your identity has been compromised, call the Sheriff’s Office at 608-637-2123, or your local law enforcement.
