The Potter County Sheriff’s Office is warning residents not to fall victim to the town's latest phone scam.

The caller identified himself as Deputy Wayne Taylor from the Potter County Sheriff’s Office, Warrant and Citation Division.
He left a message for the resident to contact him because he had some legal documentation for him, but did not leave a return phone number.

Deputies want to remind residents they should not meeting with the caller to give them money or give any personal information to them over the phone.
