Dane County Sheriff’s Office warns of scammer impersonating sergeant
MADISON, Wis. — The Dane County Sheriff’s Office is warning residents of an ongoing phone scam.
Officials said someone claiming to be a Dane County sergeant was calling people and asking for money. Officials warned last month that scammers were known to spoof their phone number to make it look like they’re calling from the agency’s main line
We’ve heard from several people today who received a call from Sgt. Mark Olson with the DCSO. Thankfully everyone has done their due diligence in verifying the source. This is a scam and we will never ask for money over the phone! #scammers #phonescam
