The Alamance County Sheriff’s Office is warning of a scam involving someone calling on the phone who claims to be an officer.

The supposed officer tells the person that a family member has missed court or grand jury and is in trouble, but the person can get the family member out of trouble by going to the bank, getting a cashier’s check for a certain amount of money, then calling back to arrange a time and place to hand over the check, the sheriff’s office said in a press release.
