VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) – The Vigo County Sheriff’s Office has issued a scam warning.

The sheriff’s office says they’ve received several reports about a phone call from a man claiming to be Captain Steve Davenport.

The person calling claims it’s regarding a warrant.

The caller says he is part of the Vigo County Sheriff’s Office Warrant and Citation Division. He says you will need to send a $2,000 money order to avoid arrest.

Vigo County Sheriff Greg Ewing says “This is absolutely a scam.”

Ewing says they don’t have anyone on staff named Steven Davenport or a Warrant and Citation Division.

Sheriff Ewing says they will never call wanted people demanding money.
