Sheriff warns of fraudulent calls seeking money

January 8, 2019

DIXON – The Lee County Sheriff’s office is investigating recent calls purporting to be from its Civil Process Division and asking citizens to pay money, or face arrest.

Such calls are fraudulent and not the normal practice of any sheriff’s office, and payments should not be made, Sheriff John Simonton said in a news release Tuesday.

Call 815-284-6631 to report such a call, or for more information.
