The Saline County Sheriff’s Office is warning citizens about a man posing as a deputy over the phone.
Undersheriff Roger Soldan tells KSAL News that he has heard from two individuals in the past week, telling him that someone identifying themselves as a deputy with the Saline County Sheriff’s Office was asking them to return his call to the (719) area code in Colorado.
In one instance the male said his name was Deputy Cruz.
“We certainly won’t call you from another area code and ask you to call us back,” Soldan said.
“And we have no one here by the name of Deputy Cruz.”
The Sheriff’s Office is warning citizens not to return the call and possibly fall victim to a number of different scam scenarios.
