Scammers are now targeting sex offenders.

The Marinette County Sheriff's Office says sex offenders on release have been getting phone calls informing them they are in non-compliance and owe money.

The offenders are told to call a number with a recording claiming to be the Marinette County Sheriff's Office.

It's all a scam.

"This is not a Sheriff's Office number and neither the Marinette County Sheriff's Office nor the Department of Corrections operate in such a manner," reads a statement from Sheriff Jerry Sauve.

It's another reminder to not give out personal information over the phone.
