Sheriff Kevin Turner would like to advise the public of a possible telephone scam occurring in Jo Daviess County.  In this particular scam, the scammer will call and say that they are a law enforcement official and indicate that the individual has an outstanding warrant for their arrest.  The scammer will then attempt to convince the individual to send money for the warrant.   Sheriff Turner urges the public to exercise extreme caution if they receive telephone calls of this nature; law enforcement will not ask to wire money nor will they call to advise you that you have an outstanding warrant.   Do not wire money to anyone unless you are ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN of the identity of the recipient.
