UPDATE: Attention - Phone Scam

Warren county sheriff badgeUPDATE: WARREN COUNTY, Ky. (5/8/14) — The Warren County Sheriff's Office has taken a few complaints of this particular scam, but now the perpetrators are saying that the Warren County DA's Office or Warren County Attorney's Office is issuing warrants if the victim doesn't agree to send money.

Warren County Attorney Amy Milliken and Warren County Sheriff Jerry "Peanuts" Gaines want to assure all Warren County citizens that business concerning the issuance of warrants, fines and costs, or other financial matters are not handled by telephone. All citizens should refuse to give any personal information and under no circumstances send money in response to a phone call from someone claiming that offices in Barren County or Warren County are going to issue warrants if financial transactions are not completed.

The Warren County Sheriff's Office has also received reports of citizens that are getting calls regarding another scam where perpetrators are calling saying loved ones are in jail out of state and requesting money be sent for bail.

Citizens can report any suspicious activity such as this to the Warren County Sheriff's Office at (270) 842-1633.
