Lyon County Sheriff's Office warns of telephone scam

Post: # 639Post Hans Neesantoes »

The Lyon County Sheriff's Office is advising the public to be aware of a telephone scam involving callers who identify themselves as an employee of the Lyon County Sheriff's Office.

The individual tells the victim there is a warrant out for their arrest, and they are told to get $950 cash for each charge. The victim is then told to get in their car with the speakerphone on and the victim will be directed to a kiosk location for the payment drop-off.

Please be advised, the Lyon County Sheriff's Office will not call you regarding a warrant and to bring cash to an undisclosed location. If you received one of these calls please hang-up and call the Sheriff's Office non-emergency phone number at 775-463-6620.
