Black Hawk County Sheriff Warns of Reported Scam

The Black Hawk County Sheriff’s Office published a Facebook post Wednesday afternoon warning residents of another floating scam taking place. Residents are now getting calls from someone who identifies as a member of the sheriff’s office, claiming the recipient missed a court date and needs to send them money.  The caller claims the money can be sent through iTunes, gift cards, or other means.  The sheriff’s office reminds residents if you miss a court date and the judge issues a warrant, deputies will come to your house. The sheriff’s office does not accept payment, especially iTunes. Residents are also urged not to provide any personal information.
