News Release
Telephonic Scam 11/18/22 - 11/18/22

REPORTING DEPUTY: Undersheriff Snyder

DETAILS: On Friday, November 18, 2022, the Josephine County Sheriff’s Office received multiple reports regarding attempted telephonic scams.  In the reoccurring attempts, persons identify themselves as members of the Sheriff’s Office and demand payment for missed jury duty.  Scammers are telling citizens to purchase a MoneyPak and meet at the Sheriff’s Office to make payment. 

The Sheriff’s Office would like to remind you that law enforcement does not operate in this fashion.  Funds are NOT solicited by law enforcement from citizens to avoid arrest.  The Sheriff’s Office would like to remind citizens to remain vigilant and report any potential scams that come their way. Persons should never provide financial or personal information to anyone until they are certain who they are speaking to.  Please be aware of these scams and call the Sheriff’s Office if you have questions or concerns.
