The Cole County Sheriff's Department is receiving complaints, again, of a scam involving warrants. This is the same scam we had last year. The suspects are calling people and identifying themselves as DEP Gary or Greg. They are telling the victims that they have active warrants and now have to pay with money orders or they will go to jail.
This is a scam and people should not pay this money. We do not call people and tell them they have a warrant, we show up at your house or come get you.
