Scam alert: Pay your past due bill or go to jail


We want to warn you about a phone scam involving a man falsely representing himself as a member of the Jasper County Sheriff's Office.

The sheriff's office says the caller states they will take you to jail if you don't pay your past due bill.

The victims are then told they could work out payments by giving their personal information.

The Jasper County Sheriff's Office wants to remind you they, nor any other law enforcement agency, would ever call demanding money or threaten jail time, and never give out personal information to anyone during an unsolicited phone call.
