Sheriff’s Office Warns Of Possible Scam

OSWEGO – The Oswego County Sheriff’s Office has been made aware of an individual calling local residents and claiming to be a member of our department.

While members of our agency may contact you by phone in regard to normal police matters, please be advised that no member or our office will contact you asking you to proceed to a local store to make payments by voucher or purchase gift cards for a warrant or fine.

Do not provide credit card or other payment information to anyone reporting to be an officer over the phone.

If you believe you are being contacted by someone who may be impersonating an officer in our department, you may verify their identity by contacting us directly at (315) 349-3411.

If you believe you are being contacted by someone impersonating an officer of another department, you may contact that office using their non-emergency number for verification.
