There has been a series of fraudulent activities in Des Moines County.
Local businesses have let the Des Moines County Sheriff’s Office know of a potential scam that is impacting the community. These businesses have been contacted with a request for paid advertisement on behalf of the Des Moines County Sheriff’s Department.
The Sheriff’s Department is not behind this, and they do not request advertising from the community over the phone. This needs to be considered fraudulent, and this matter is currently under investigation.
As always, if you are contacted by law enforcement and are skeptical for any reason, hang up and dial the agencies number.
