Sheriff warns of scam

If someone calls you on the telephone and says they are raising money to buy equipment for the Letcher County Sheriff’s Office, don’t believe a word they are saying.

That’s the message from Letcher County Sheriff Danny Webb, who is warning people this week about a new telephone scam being operated by people claiming to raise money for the sheriff’s department.

Webb said the scam artists are calling Letcher County residents and asking for money to buy Taser guns and other equipment.

“The sheriff’s office does not solicit funds,” said Webb. “We have no part in anybody trying to get money for anything.”
