The Grafton County Sheriff’s Department is warning residents of a phone scam involving someone falsely claiming to be a member of their department.
In a statement issued Monday night, Grafton County Sheriff Sheriff Jeff Stiegler said his department has been made aware of a “very concerning” scam involving a caller claiming to be Sergeant Aaron Roberts, or a deputy with the Grafton County Sheriff’s Department.
“This scammer threatens community members and demands money or personal information,” said Stiegler in a statement. “According to reports, the caller will state that this individual missed jury duty or some sort of civil or criminal obligation. In some instances, it appears that the scammer claims the party is able to resolve the matter by sending money orders or pre-paid credit cards.”
