By  | 

BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - The Penobscot County Sheriff's Office has issued a warning after receiving reports of a phone scam...

In a Facebook post, officials wrote that people have received calls from a man claiming to be Lt. Brown.

Officials say the caller told the victims that have failed to appear for jury duty and a warrant was issued for their arrest.

The caller said the issue could be resolved if the victim paid a $1,000 bail fee with a credit or money card.

The Sheriff's Office wants to remind folks that they will never call and ask for money.
