WOODFORD COUNTY, Ill. (WMBD) — The Woodford County Sheriff’s Office is warning the public about scammers impersonating them Tuesday.

The Woodford County Sheriff’s office stated that they would never call and inform you that you have a warrant and will not ask for payment over the phone.
Anyone who receives a scam call is encouraged to discontinue the call, anyone who is concerned can contact the sheriff’s office at 309-467-2375.
