The Mason County Sheriff’s Office is warning residents about a phone scam in which the caller pretends to be a deputy.
The “deputy,” according to the sheriff’s office, then demands payment for an outstanding warrant.
“The Mason County Sheriff’s Office will not contact you in such a manner. Do not respond to this scam phone call,” a post on the department’s Facebook page reads.
Anyone who receives a call from the scammer is asked to call the sheriff’s office at either 360-277-3097 or 360-427-9670 Ext. 313.
