Lincoln County Sheriff's Office Scam Alert


The Lincoln County Sheriff's Office announced they have heard from multiple citizens who have received phone calls or voicemail messages from someone claiming to be a Deputy, Sergeant or Lieutenant "Todd Hughes" with the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office. He tells them that he needs to speak to them about an urgent court matter and gives a phone number of 541-264-5397. The number leads to a voicemail box claiming to belong to the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office. The public needs to be alerted that this individual is not associated with the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office agency and is most likely trying to obtain personal information or money. If you receive a call like this, be advised to not disclose any personal or financial information and do not agree to meet in person at any location. Hang up and contact law enforcement and give them as much information as you can obtain from the caller.
