Callers pretending to be deputies from Kosciusko County Sheriff's Office
KOSCIUSKO COUNTY, Ind. – There have been calls circulating the county from 574-549-5146 with the caller representing themselves as a deputy from the Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Office.
When calling the number back, there is a generic “county sheriff” extension menu.
Suspects are seeking restitution for a missed court date or subpoena and want gift cards for the payment.
These calls are false.
The Sheriff’s Office is not responsible for collecting fees; they are generally paid at the county clerk’s office.
Personal information such as an operator’s license number, social security number or banking information should never be given to an unknown party.
