KOSCIUSKO COUNTY, Ind. (WOWO) The Kosciusko County Sheriff's Department detectives are warning citizens of yet another telephone scam circulating around the area.
The scam-caller will portray themselves as a police officer, sheriff’s deputy or a member of the jail staff to gain the confidence of the potential victim.
The suspect then claims that a family member or employee is currently in jail and needs bail money. The caller will then ask the potential victim to forward money via a Green Dot prepaid money card, or another similar source.
Officers with the Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Department say they will never call soliciting for bail money for any person in jail.
