Wayne County Sheriff's Office Warning

Wayne County residents should be aware that scammers masquerading as deputies are calling residents in an effort to defraud them.  The following tips are offered to help people avoid being conned:

  • Law enforcement will never call you requiring you to pay on line for a warrant against you.
  • Never, ever agree to meet someone at an address that is not a law enforcement agency office, station or municipal court.
  • Disregard any call from someone demanding cash payment.
  • If law enforcement does have a warrant for you, we (law enforcement) will make a personal visit to you.
  • Do not give out personal identifying information over the phone, unless you are sure you know who you are giving information to.
