Scam Alert blue 300DAVIESS COUNTY, Ky. (8/13/19) — The Daviess County Sheriff’s Office is warning residents about a scam caller that claims to a representative from DCSO.

The sheriff’s office has received several calls reporting that a caller to area residents posing as Major Bill Thompson and saying the call recipient has missed court and has several warrants for their arrest. The caller then asks for the resident to send money to the caller.

DCSO said the sheriff’s office phone number has been “spoofed” and appears to be from DCSO but is not.

The sheriff’s office will never call and request money to have warrants eliminated, said DCSO. The office does not collect money for any type warrant or court fee.
