Authorities Warn About Scott County Phone Scam

  • Photo
DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) - Authorities in eastern Iowa are warning residents about a phone scam.

The Scott County Sheriff's Office says a resident was recently contacted by a suspicious caller. The caller claimed there was a warrant out for the resident's arrest and demanded money to dismiss it.

The resident was instructed by the caller to go to a local store to purchase a money card to settle a $400 fee. A vigilant store clerk stopped the resident.

Authorities say no law enforcement agency would request a money card from a person in that circumstance. All fines must be paid at the Clerk of Court office.
