Hancock County Sheriff’s Office Warns About Phone Scam

2/13/19 – 5:17 A.M.

Another phone scam is making the rounds in Hancock County. Sheriff Michael Heldman says people are getting calls from someone claiming to be him. The caller tells the target of the scam they are wanted for contempt of court and that deputies are going to arrest them unless they give personal information over the phone.

Heldman says he does not call people who are in contempt of court. If you get a call like this you should just hang up.
