Scam Using Sheriff's Office As Method To Target Potential Victims



LINCOLN -- Another scam is out to target you, this time it's someone claiming to be a lieutenant from the Lancaster County Sheriff's Office about you paying a fine.  Sheriff Terry Wagner says his department will never do that and the other key thing about this being a scam is that the sheriff's office has no lieutenant ranking.  He says they do on occasion call people about warrants and fines, but will NEVER ask for their credit card or other financial information.  Three people were targeted recently and didn't become victims.  None of those people had any warrants.
