Callers attempting to solicit money

The Lawrence County Clerk's Office is warning residents about a possible scam in the area.

According to Steven Kahre, Lawrence County clerk, someone has been calling residents pretending to be from the clerk's office and soliciting money and personal information, threatening jail if the resident does not comply.

"This is not anyone from the clerk's office," Kahre said. "If you have received a call like this, call law enforcement or 911 immediately."

The Lawrence County Sheriff's Office may be reached at 417-466-2131.
