The Pennington County Sheriff’s Office has learned of a scam affecting the area.

Recipients received a recorded call from someone claiming that there were problems with the person’s Social Security number.

The caller also threatens that the sheriff’s office will arrive at the person’s home in 15 minutes if the problem weren’t rectified.

Sheriff Ray Kuznia advises the public that this is a scam and the sheriff’s office will never request a Social Security number.
