The Cole County Sheriff??s Department says a new phone scam is targeting residents.
Scam artists are calling people and claiming that they are part of an on-going investigation with the Department of Justice and the Cole County Sheriff??s Department.
The caller then says that if the person who answered the call doesn??t call them back, an investigative team will be sent to arrest them.
The Sheriff??s Department was notified about this scam and said this compares to a scam a few months ago involving Jury Duty.
