Pike County fraud

Posted on Wednesday, March 4, 2015 at 8:29 am

The Pike County Sheriffs Office received a report on Monday, March 2, from a local citizen claiming that they had received a call from us about a fraud investigation. The caller used a name similar to that of a dispatcher. This was not the case.
It has come to our attention that there is a smart phone app that will let someone put in any number they want as the number they are calling from. If a caller claims to be law enforcement and asks questions that make you seem suspicious politely ask if they you may call them back at the office. The primary Sheriff’s Office number is 573-324-3202.
