Burleigh County Sheriff's Department Warns of Phone Scam

Posted:

The Burleigh County Sheriff's Department warns of a scheme using the department to make money.

An unknown person has been calling others identifying himself as a deputy.

The person acting as a deputy says he is calling because the potential victim has missed jury duty and an arrest warrant has been issued.

The scammer says to avoid arrest the victim needs to pay--and directs them to obtain a money order from a local business.

A similar scam was reported in Grand Forks County earlier this month.
