SCAM Alert

The McKenzie County Sheriff’s Office has received reports of a phone call scam utilizing a phone number associated with the McKenzie County Sheriff’s Office. The phone call comes from a 1-866 prefix and then calls back from a Sheriff’s Office phone number using a phishing application. 
Callers are demanding that individuals transfer money onto prepaid cards or they will arrest the individual if they do not comply.  This is a scam! 
The McKenzie County Sheriff’s Office will not request money from you to prevent an arrest or a case from being investigated.  This is not only illegal, but also immoral and unethical. 
This is a friendly reminder to be cautious and know who you are transferring money, releasing banking information, providing social security numbers, or releasing other personal information to.
