Telephone Scam

  • Posted: January 17, 2020

Sussex County Sheriff Michael F. Strada would like to warn residents of a telephone scam targeting Sussex County.

Some Sussex County residents have reported receiving telephone calls within the last few days from someone stating they are calling from the Sussex County Sheriff’s Office. The caller says that you will be arrested if you do not satisfy a particular debt. They give a case number and a call back number.

Do not fall for this latest scam. The Sussex County Sheriff’s Office is not making these calls. If you have received a call threatening arrest by the Sussex County Sheriff’s Office, please call the Sussex County Prosecutor’s Office at 973.383.1570, ext. 4526.

A charge is an accusation and all defendants are presumed innocent until or unless proven guilty. If you have any questions regarding anything published herein, please contact the Public Information Office at 973.579.0865, ext. 2010.
