The Better Business Bureau is warning Allen County residents about a phone scam making the rounds in the area. WLIO-TV reports the man on the phone line claims to be Lt. Frank Rogers with the Allen County Sheriff’s Office. The man tells the target of the scam they have an outstanding warrant for missing jury duty.
The red flag is how the man asks for payment of a fine. He tells residents they can pay the $500 fee on a Green Dot money card, or through an iTunes or Amazon gift card.
The Better Business Bureau says to hang up if you get a call like that.
