Oneida County Sheriff Warns Of Phone Scam
The Oneida County Sheriff's Office is warning residents of a phone scam.
Sheriff Rob Maciol says over the last two days, there have been reports of people calling county residents and identifying themselves as members of the Sheriff’s Office, claiming there are warrants out for their arrests for failing to appear for jury duty.
The resident is then told the only way they can clear them up is to pay the court fees over the phone or there would be someone coming to arrest them.
Maciol say the phone calls are not legitimate and are part of a scam to get people to provide personal information.
If anyone has been victim to the scam, they're asked to call the Sheriff's Office at (315) 736-0141.
