CASS COUNTY — The Cass County Sheriff's Office is informing the public of a scam that is making its way through the Fargo-Moorhead area.

Scammers are "spoofing" the phone number of a Cass County deputy sheriff. This is concerning because the call being placed appears to come from a legitimate law enforcement source. The phone number being used is 701-367-4639.

The deputy received multiple calls back from concerned citizens. The deputy was advised the responsible individual is rude and not forthcoming for the reason the call is being made which, in turn, is frustrating and frightening those being called.

The sheriff's office was unaware of anyone falling victim to the scam.

If, at any time, an individual identifies themselves as a deputy from the Cass County Sheriff’s Office and they are unprofessional, contact the sheriff's office at 701-241-1283.
