The DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office is warning the public of a telephone scam.

In the scam, the caller pretends to be a Sheriff’s officer seeking an urgent call back or payment for missing jury duty. The call appears on caller I.D. as a Sheriff’s administration line.

If no one answers the call, the caller leaves a call back number not associated with the Sheriff's office.  The suspect making the call will answer if the number is called.
