Attention citizens of Love County BEWARE: It has come to our attention that there is a scam going around where a man calls and says he is with a law enforcement agency (Noble County Sheriff's Office is the one we have heard about) and claims that you have an active warrant for your arrest.

He then goes on to say you can be arrested if you do not handle this quickly and requests that you go and purchase gift cards and then provide the numbers to him over the internet.

This is 100% a SCAM!!!

A law enforcement agency will never contact you by phone to request that you provide any money over the phone or internet.

These types of matters tend to be handled face to face.

Please pass along to anyone in your family who may become a victim of this scam.

These criminals tend to seek out the elderly who aren't computer savvy or technology proficient.
