SARATOGA, N.Y. (NEWS10) – The Saratoga County Sheriff’s Office has received complaints from county residents saying they have received scam phone calls.

Office who is making this type of demand. Do not provide them with any personal information,
end the telephone call and notify the Sheriff’s Office.
