Ottawa, IL – Recent reports from LaSalle County warn residents of a sophisticated phone scam where callers pose as officials from the LaSalle County Sheriff’s Office. The scammers claim that a relative or acquaintance has been arrested and urgently requires bond money, cunningly demanding payment via credit cards, gift cards, or wire transfers.

According to the real LaSalle County Sheriff’s Office, these deceptive calls are not a legitimate law enforcement practice. The Sheriff’s Office asserts that it would never request personal financial information or direct payment methods such as gift cards for bond purposes. Community members are urged to stay vigilant and report any suspicious calls to the authorities, ensuring that personal and financial data remain secure.
