Milwaukee Sheriff's Office is alerting the public of a phone scam.

The Sheriff's Office says scammers are using the office's phone number to scare Milwaukee County residents.

Scammers have called citizens, telling them they have missed jury duty and a warrant has been issued for their arrest.

This is a reminder that the Sheriff's Office will never call or email citizens threatening to arrest them.

The Sheriff's Office advises if you receive a similar call to hang up immediately.

If you have fallen victim to the scam and have suffered money loss, report the call via email to Sheriff@milwaukeecountywi.gov, or by phone at 414-278-4705.
