KEARNEY, Neb. (KSNB) - Another telephone scam is circulating in Central Nebraska.

In a prepared statement Thursday afternoon, the Buffalo County Sheriff’s Office said it was receiving reports of local numbers calling and claiming to be their office. The callers apparently ask for money to dismiss fake active warrants.

In the statement, the sheriff’s office said they never contact anyone requesting gift cards for any payment.

They ask that local resident warn their family, friends and neighbors. Anyone with questions is asked to call the Buffalo County Sheriff’s office at 308-236-8555.
