Residents Continue To Receive Phone Scam Calls

Lincoln County Sheriff's
Office Press Release


LINCOLNTON, N.C. - The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office has received numerous reports from citizens in the area being targeted by scammers claiming to represent the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office.

Victims are continuing to receive phone calls from what shows up on Caller ID as a Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office telephone number. It also may show up as a local office landline number. Residents are then informed that is important that they return the phone call and leave a number.

Residents who have called back receive a very official sounding recording with the name of an actual officer working for the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office. One alert resident called the number on the caller ID which was an office number at the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office.

The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office would like to advise all citizens this is scam. Citizens should not provide any personal identifying information over the phone, purchase any money cards, or exchange in money in reference to such calls.

The calls are under investigation by the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office.

This is a scam!
