The Laramie County Sheriff's Office is warning citizens not to fall for a scam that is making the rounds.

According to an agency Facebook post, someone claiming to be a deputy with the Civil Division is calling people and threatening legal action if they are not paid.

"Deputies may contact you in reference to a civil paper that needs to be served but will never ask that you pay a fine or fee in exchange, in lieu or to defer any civil service, warrant or criminal charge," the post reads.
