Sheriff Dart warns of phone scam

Submitted by the Office

of Cook County Sheriff

Thomas J. Dart

Cook County Sheriff

Thomas J. Dart is warning

of a phone scam in

which the caller claims to

be a member of the Cook

County Sheriff’s Office

demanding personal information

and, in some cases,

money related to a warrant.

In this scam, a spoofing

application is used to make

it appear on the caller ID

that the phone call is coming

from the Sheriff’s Office.

The Sheriff’s Office

does not make such notifications

by phone, nor does

the office ask for payment

over the phone.

Sheriff Dart offers the

following tips to avoid

becoming a phone scam


• If you believe the call

is suspicious, hang up.

• Never give personal

information, such as social

security or bank account

numbers, over the phone.

• Legitimate police employees

do not ask that

payments be made via prepaid

debit cards.

• If the caller claims to

be from a specific agency,

hang up and call that agency

to determine if there is

a legitimate reason to contact

you. Do not use the

phone number the caller

gives you.

Sheriff Dart asks anyone

who believes they are

victim of this scam to call

their local police department

and financial institutions

as soon as possible.

The Sheriff’s Police can be

reached at (708) 865-4896.


They say it’s your birthday

Happy 4th birthday, Lexi. Wishing you a

birthday as sweet and lovely as you are!
