Sheriff’s office warns of scam


MACON COUNTY – Officials want to warn you about a phone scam.

They say people are getting calls from an 815 area code. The callers are claiming to represent the “Injured and Disabled Police Officer Fund for Macon County.” The sheriff’s office says don’t give money to them, because they don’t support a real charity.

If they call you, call the Macon County Elder Abuse and Scam Hotline at 217-615-7582.
