Phone Scam Alert: Nov. 16, 2022

by | Nov 16, 2022 | Sheriff Press Releases

–A message from Bannock County Sheriff Tony Manu–

We have been informed of phone fraudsters impersonating Bannock County Sheriff’s Office employees to issue false subpoenas and warrants.

I want the public to be aware of a few things:

• No deputy or employee of the Bannock County Sheriff’s Office will ever ask you to give them money.

• We never issue subpoenas or warrants over the phone. That is not standard protocol for our Office.

• If someone presents themselves as one of our deputies or employees and states you have a legal issue and need to pay a sum of money immediately, they are attempting to scam you.

If you are contacted by someone from the Sheriff’s Office, and you are concerned about the legitimacy of the call:

• Write down the caller’s identity, badge # and phone number, if you can.
• Let the caller know you will hang up and call right back to verify their identity.
• Call our office to verify their name and if they have indeed contacted you; do NOT call the number they provide you.

Sheriff’s Office Phone Numbers:
Main Office* – (208) 236-7111
Civil Division (M-Th, 7a-6p) – (208)236-7195

*If you call after hours, ask to speak with the patrol shift supervisor on duty.

These phone numbers are also available on our website,
