CORTLAND COUNTY (WBNG) -- The Cortland County Sheriff's Office is warning individuals of scam callers demanding money.
The sheriff's office says it is investigating "several complaints" of callers demanding a payment. They say the callers are telling people they will be arrested for money laundering or drug trafficking if they don't send money to a desired place. They callers are male and female, they say.
The call begins with the caller claiming to work for a law office and then they state a case identification number, the sheriff's office says.
Then, authorities say, they ask for numbers on the back of a gift card to be read back to them.
The Cortland County Sheriff's Office would like to remind people that law enforcement agencies do not call and ask for payments.
