Authorities Warn About Latest Phone Scam

Authorities are warning Rhode Islanders about the latest phone scam.  The Division of Sheriffs in East Providence says the caller posing as a deputy sheriff tells the intended victim they owe money for failure to pay a fine or appear for jury duty.  They are asked to meet at the sheriff's office parking lot or another location.  Authorities say deputies don't make calls to collect fines and those that receive them should contact their local sheriff’s office.
