The Winneshiek County Sheriff's Department recently learned of an attempted scam where the caller uses actual names of local law enforcement personnel in an attempt to defraud individuals out of money.
In the most recent case, they claimed to be with an asset recovery service claiming to be working with local law enforcement. The Sheriff's Department reminds the public to never give out personal information, especially over the phone.
