Bucks County Sheriff Warns of Phone Scam

April 8, 2015
A message from the Sheriff...

The Bucks County Sheriff’s Office has received numerous complaints from residents that they have received phone calls from a subject claiming to be a Bucks County Sheriff’s Deputy. The phone caller states that he or she has a warrant for them and if they don’t pay a certain amount of money they will be arrested. At that point, the caller asks for the person to meet them in a shopping center parking lot.

Bucks County Sheriff Edward Donnelly asks all residents to please be advised that this phone call is a scam.

“The Bucks County Sheriff’s Office would never call and ask for money,” Sheriff Donnelly stated. “Our office also would never ask to meet a subject in a shopping center lot.”

If you receive a phone call of this nature, you are advised to hang up immediately and contact the Bucks County Sheriff’s Office at 215-348-6123 or call your local police department.
