Don't fall for scams! Please pass on scammer information to the elderly people you know.
Our investigative captain took a complaint from someone that said he received several calls yesterday from “Sgt. _______ with the Brown County Sheriff’s Office, Investigative Division” about a serious matter. He couldn’t tell me what the angle was because he recognized it as a scam and hung up. The number that came up was the number of one of our officers.
There are countless types of scams out there and the scammers will often spoof real numbers and real names.
