An old scam making new rounds


SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO AM) - An old scam is resurfacing in the Sioux Empire.

     Officer Sam Clemens says this racket preys on those having a warrant hanging over them.  He says the caller claims to have affiliation with the Minnehaha County State's Attorney's office.  He says the scammers threaten the victims to pay the money owed on the warrants.

     Clemens says it's the responsibility of the Sheriff's Office to serve and collect on those warrants. The State's Attorney only issues the warrants               

     Clemens says money must be paid at the jail or sheriff’s office.

     Clemens says the State's Attorney's office has received many phone calls over the scam.
