Debt phone scam reported in Allen County

The Allen County Sheriff’s Warrants Division reported Friday that it has received several phone calls in the last few days regarding a debt scam.

Residents are contacted by telephone, told they owe a debt and that if they don’t sent money a warrant will be issued for their arrest, according to a statement issued by the sheriff’s department.

The caller says the resident will be arrested by a county officer at home if the money is not sent.

The sheriff’s department said those who get a scam call should not send any money.
