Incline Village Residents Scammed

Residents in the Incline Village area were targeted in a wide reaching phone scam Tuesday night. The Washoe County Sheriff’s Office reported a scammer impersonating the deputy sheriff and lieutenant attempting to swindle victims out of thousands of dollars. Police say the Incline Village Substation opened multiple cases last night related to the string of attempted scams. Washoe County Sheriff’s Office says they will never call you if you miss jury duty nor ask for payment over the phone.
