Cowley County Sheriff’s Office says it has responded to several different types of scam calls in the last week. The scams are ranging from a Social Security Laundering ring in Texas to a Kidnapping of family members for Ransom. If you receive a phone call from an unknown number, or in some cases a known number, and believe this could be a scam please do not give them any personal information or answer the questions they are asking. Do not go purchase gift cards and give them the numbers to pay them. If you have any questions about scams please call your local law enforcement agency or our office at (620)221-5444.
