Sheriff’s Office Warns Of Phone Scam

The Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Office has received several phone calls of a phone scam working its way through our community and as far away as Indianapolis. The caller has been posing as Captain Travis Marsh from the Sheriff’s Office, telling people that they have warrants or have missed a court date and need to pay fees to avoid going to jail. The scammers have also used other information available over the internet to try
and convince victims that they are legitimate. The number used is (574) 358-8341, a VOIP phone number. The Sheriff’s Office wants to inform everyone that we will never solicit payments over the telephone for anything. Those receiving calls from the imposter will quickly note that he cannot correctly pronounce “Kosciusko.”
