Milwaukee, WI – The Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office has issued a warning about a rise in phone scams involving “spoofing,” where scammers disguise their identity on caller ID to deceive residents. 

The sheriff’s office emphasizes that they do not contact individuals by phone or email to threaten arrest. Citizens are urged to remain vigilant and not engage with such fraudulent calls. According to the sheriff’s announcement, government bodies like the Social Security Administration and the Internal Revenue Service initiate contact through mail and are not known to make threatening calls. 

The notice provides contact information for reporting scams to various agencies including the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office, Social Security Administration, State of Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection, and the Federal Trade Commission, urging the community to use these resources if needed.
