Sheriff warns of new Woodbury County phone scam

If you get a phone call stating you have a warrant out for your arrest or a family member has been arrested and needs money right away, beware: the Woodbury County Sheriff's Office says it's the latest phone scam hitting the county.

The Sheriff's Office says it hasn't heard of any law enforcement agency that works like this.

According to a press release, a person from Woodbury County was a victim of the scam and lost a large sum of money.

Before sending any money, wiring any money, or giving out credit card information, be sure to make sure the person on the other end of the phone line is who they say they are.

It could save you thousands of dollars.
