FARGO (KFGO-AM) -- The Cass County Sheriff's Office is warning of a scam where the caller claims to be with the department's warrant division.
Chief Deputy Rick Majerus says those receiving the calls are threatened with arrest if they don't pay a fine that doesn't exist. Various ranks and names are used including Lt. Johnson and Capt. Laney.
Majerus says he isn't aware of anyone losing money to the scheme. He says many of the calls, where the 701 area code appears, are targeting Fargo residents.
