The Dubuque County Sheriff’s Office is warning residents of a phone scam going on around the county.
The caller identifies themselves as an investigator and tells the resident they have missed jury duty. The resident is then advised to purchase a gift card and provide that information to the scammer.
The Sheriff’s Office reminds everyone that government business is not conducted through the use of gift cards.
If you have fallen victim to this scam, please contact dispatch at 563-589-4415 and authorities will respond to take a report.
