Sheriff Carolyn Bunny Welsh has issued a warning to Chester County
residents regarding a phone scam. Welsh stated “there is an organized
effort on the part of individuals attempting to scam residents of Chester
County. We need to inform our citizens that these calls are bogus and do
not originate here in the Chester County Sheriff’s Office.”’

In various parts of the Chester County, residents are being targeted by
bogus phone calls and threatened with arrest by Deputy Sheriffs on a
bench warrant for failing to report for jury service in Chester County Court.
Welsh states “All residents should be warned to never share sensitive
information with anyone you don’t know. Unfortunately there are criminals who use many types of scams and frauds to take advantage of individuals and families. We need to provide all information possible to protect our citizens.”

Persons receiving such a telephone call should not provide any requested
information, and instead should hang up and contact their local police
department. They can also notify the Jury Services Office 610-344-6174 or the Chester County Sheriff’s Office at 610-344-6850.
