Phone Scammers Pretending to Be La Crosse Deputies

LA CROSSE COUNTY, WI (Ben Caxton) — The La Crosse County Sheriff’s Department is warning the public about a new phone scam. People in the area report receiving calls from scammers who are identifying themselves using names of county deputies saying that they recently missed jury duty and demanding that they stay on the line while they walk or drive to the Sheriff’s Office to appear at the front counter. The Sheriff’s Office says this is causing long lines and increased telephone traffic at headquarters and reminds the public that jury duty summons are the responsibility of the clerk of court, not county sheriff’s deputies.
