Monroe County warns of scam

SPARTA, Wisconsin (WXOW) - Monroe County authorities are warning residents of a possible scam. 

The Sheriff's Office has information that a person is calling county residents claiming to be from the Monroe County Service and Process Department.  The person calling says it has to do with fraud charges.

The phone number used by the caller is 888-742-4044.  Calling the number brings only a message that says "Mutual".  Callers then need to leave a message.

The Sheriff's Office is not making these calls nor anyone associated with them. 

They advise people to always be aware of suspicious calls asking for personal information as they are scams.

Detective Sergeant Ronald Rader said that the department sees these types of scam calls increase around tax refund season.
