Sheriff Department notice: new phone scam in our area
The Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office would like to make you aware of a new scam taking place in our area.
The Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office has been made aware of two separate instances where a caller pretends to be a “Lieutenant Henderson” with the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office. The scammer then tells the unsuspecting victim that they owe a fine for an unresolved police issue (missing jury duty, ignoring a summons, etc..).
This is a scam and the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office will never call you demanding money. If you receive a call such as this, hang up. Please record the phone number and contact us at our non-emergency dispatch (734-994-2911). “Lieutenant Henderson” does not work for the WCSO
Please do not give ANY personal information to anyone you do not know. There are numerous scams which occur daily and this is just the latest in their attempt to scam you out of your identity or resources.
