The Susquehanna County Sheriff’s Office is warning residents about a scam where a caller claims to be a member of the Sheriff’s Department and asks for cash payments.

The Department never requests payments by phone or asks for personal information.

Sheriff’s officials say the scammers are so clever, the caller ID number appears to be from inside the County Courthouse.

Residents should report this or other suspicious activity to the Sheriff’s Office at (570) 278-6650 or Susquehanna County District Attorney Robert Klein at (570) 278-6655.
