Cass County Scam Reported


The Cass County Sheriff’s Office is warning the public of a scam that is making the rounds through the F-M Area.

An individual is contacting victims identifying himself as a Cass County Lieutenant at which time notifies them they missed jury duty and a civil sanction will be imposed if payment is not received.   They are requesting payment via “green dot card;” if payment is not received, the civil judgement will turn criminal and go on their record.

The scammer is utilizing the Cass County Law Enforcement Center address as a meeting location and requests to meet them at night.   Deputies have contacted the originating number (701.248.0600) at which time received a voice recording “Law Enforcement Department” with options to speak with a deputy and/or report a civil issue.

The Cass County Sheriff’s Office continues an investigation into the situation.
