Sheriff Warns Of Phone Fraud

By From Staff And Wire Reports

The Kootenai County Sheriff’s Department warned residents Saturday of a telephone fraud that has surfaced in the eastern part of the county.

The fraud involves callers identifying themselves as representatives of the sheriff’s department selling advertising in a law enforcement magazine.

For any telephone solicitor that sounds suspicious, the sheriff’s department advises that residents ask for a call-back number or business address. A legitimate business would welcome a call back or visit to their business.

Reports of suspected telephone fraud should be directed to local law enforcement or the Idaho attorney general’s office of Consumer Fraud in Boise.
