MIAMI COUNTY — The Miami County Sheriff’s Office is warning residents of a recent phone scam.
According to a social media post from the sheriff’s office, a man calling himself Brian Lewis is calling residents and telling them they missed a court date.
“He is trying to get money out of people in lieu of an arrest warrant,” the sheriff’s office said. “This is a common scam that keeps coming back periodically.”
The sheriff’s office is reminding residents that law enforcement agencies will never solicit funds for any reason.
If you receive such a call, you can report it to your local law enforcement agency.
