The Osage Beach Police Department is spreading the word of yet another scam artist attempting to take advantage of Lake Area residents. According to Sergeant Arlyne Page, a guy presenting himself as a representative for a local Law Firm with a heavy Indian accent is contacting people informing them that they are going to be arrested on warrants the next day. The man is using the name of the Police Department from the area that the resident resides in as the arresting agency saying that if they don’t pay a debt that is owed, they will be thrown in jail. Page says Police Departments are not involved in civil actions, only Sheriff’s offices and on top of that you would go to court, not jail. It is only if you violated a court order would you be arrested. If this person calls you, don’t give them any information and simply hang up.
