MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) - A scammer is calling residents of Jackson County claiming to be a sheriff’s captain.

The Medford Mail Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1LYDWgH ) that the Sheriff’s Office has received several calls from residents claiming Capt. Nathan Sickler - a real division caption with the agency - called them and told them to pay cash over the phone of face arrest because of missed appearances for federal jury duty.

Officials say the scammer is calling with a Klamath Falls number and that real deputies generally do not call to warn people they have a warrant for their arrest.

The real Sickler says they are investigating the calls and trying to track the guilty party down.
