Deputy arrests man in Corbin

Whitley County Sheriff’s Dept. warns of scam

The Whitley County Sheriff’s Department has received numerous complaints of phone calls determined to be scams, according to Sheriff Colan Harrell.

He explained that in each case, a person received a phone call indicating he/she owed money for an outstanding speeding ticket.

Harrell said that other times, the scammer claims the person owes money on a loan which may not have been applied for.

That scammer often threatens that if payment for the outstanding traffic citation or loan payment is not paid off, an arrest warrant for the person will be issued.

Harrell wants the public to know fines for traffic citations are not collected by a third party. In Kentucky, fines must be paid to the district or city clerk of the county or city where the citation was received.

If money is owed on a loan, Harrell explained the company through which the loan was made would file a civil action against the debtor, after which a civil summons would be served.

Harrell said if residents receive any type of call they feel is questionable, ask for a callback number and do not give out any type of personal information, especially your Social Security number or credit/debit card and bank account numbers.  

Harrell added the Whitley County Sheriff’s Department stresses that citizens should not give out any personal information by phone, especially if the call is unsolicited.
