Aroostook County Sheriff's Office warns of phone scam

AROOSTOOK COUNTY, Maine - The Aroostook County Sheriff’s Office says they have taken an influx of phone calls from County residents indicating that they have received a phone call from someone claiming to be “Officer Brown from Aroostook County” and claiming that they have a summons for the person that they are calling.

Police say that the caller gives a case number and a phone number to call.

This is a scam. Do not call the number and do not give anyone any personal information over the phone.

If you have any questions about the legitimacy of a call you receive, you can contact the Sheriff's Office at 1-800-432-7842 or 532-3471.
