“In February we told residents Polk County Sheriff’s Office deputies do not call residents and instruct them to purchase any sort of debit card or money order to pay off a fine for missed jury duty, an outstanding warrant, missed court date fee, red-light ticket fine, or legal fee,” said Sheriff Grady Judd. “And unfortunately, we again have received information that someone is trying to swindle citizens using our agency’s name — don’t be fooled by this thief. No one at the Polk County Sheriff’s Office makes phone calls collecting alleged debts.”
