Jeffco Sheriff Ted Mink reported that phone scams and identity theft are on the rise, in his second-quarter report to the county commissioners on Aug. 5.
“With a nationwide increase in frauds, (the Jeffco Sheriff’s Office) is streamlining its approach with the use of a fraud reporting hotline,” Mink said in his report.
Over-the-phone scams in particular have been on the rise, Mink said.
“We have been inundated with calls and reports,” Mink said. “That’s why we created the fraud hotline.”
