Scam Calls Prompt Warning From JCSO

The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office has been receiving reports of scam calls to local residents requesting money to resolve warrants from someone pretending to be a deputy from JCSO.

Authorities want to reminder the public, to NEVER send money to someone representing themselves as law enforcement on the phone.

JCSO and other law enforcement entities will NEVER call you to collect money.

When in doubt, hang up and call the department’s official phone number. The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office can be contacted at 541-774-6800.

Make sure to remind and share with friends and family that may be vulnerable to such scams.
