BOONE COUNTY, Mo. – The Boone County Sheriff’s Office warns residents of a recent phone call scam that intends to steal personal information.

The Boone County Sherrif said on Facebook that the scam involves someone posing as a deputy and claiming individuals failed to do one of the following:

  • Pay a fine

Though officers may call for legitimate reasons, the sheriff’s office reminds people that deputies will never try to collect money over the phone.
