Authorities in Sharp County are investigating yet another phone scam. This scam uses Chief Aaron Presserâ€™s name and instructs the victim to purchase a green dot card and bring it to a kiosk at the Sharp County courthouse. The scammer even goes into detail giving the victim a fake warrant number and fake charges.
Officials last week advised anyone who receives a call like this to be very cautious and stated that the Sharp County courthouse does not have a kiosk as referred by the phone scammer. If you receive a call like this one do not give out any personal information and contact the Sharp County sheriffâ€™s department @ 870-994-7356.
