LANSING, Mich. — Another scam is floating about.

The Ingham County Sheriff's Office said they are getting complaints about a scammer posing to be them.

The caller claims they work for the sheriff's office and the victim is either in violation of the law, or a loved one has been arrested.

In both cases, the caller is requesting money to resolve the issue.

The sheriff's office said it will never call demanding money or any form of payment.

If you receive a call like this, hang up immediately.
