Scam Calls to Northampton Residents


The Northampton County Sheriff’s Department has received numerous inquiries about a male identifying himself as a lieutenant from the Northampton County Sheriff’s Department. Said lieutenant is contacting residents by telephone concerning “failing to appear” and “maintain contact order.” The lieutenant then requests the resident to purchase money orders in lieu of arrest.


The Northampton County Sheriff’s Department will never request anyone to purchase a money order in lieu of arrest.


Please report any solicitations to the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s office at 800-441-2555 or email them at scams@attorneygeneral.gov.
