The Aroostook County Sheriff’s Office is advising County residents to be aware of a phone scam from someone calling and claiming to be “Officer Brown from Aroostook County” with a summons.

This is a scam, said the Aroostook County Sheriff’s Office. The caller says they will give you a case number and a phone number to call. Do not call the number and do not give anyone any personal information over the phone, the Sheriff’s Office went on to say.

Officials say they have taken an influx of phone calls from people who have received this type of call. Call the Aroostook County Sheriff’s Office at 1-800-432-7842 or 532-3471 if you have any questions about the legitimacy of a call you receive.
