The Alpena County Sheriff's Office has received information of a scam in the Alpena area.

An individual is calling local residents and claiming to be a deputy within the sheriff's office. The individual then continues by telling residents that they have outstanding warrants and that they need to wire money to them or risk being arrested.

The sheriff's office wants the public to know that this is a scam and police agencies will never request a money wire. The sheriff's office has opened an investigation into the identity of the individual or individuals and their whereabouts.
