The newest scam brought to the Sheriff’s Office attention is citizens receiving phone calls from the Marinette County Sheriff’s Office phone number stating they are Chief Deputy Hansen. They are telling citizens they did not show up to court and need to go to the Sheriff’s Office or pay $5,000. This is a scam!

Do not send money; give out credit or debit information, social security numbers, or any other personal information at all. Ask them to call the Sheriff or just hang up on them.
