From the Dunn County Sheriff's Office:
During the past week the Sheriff's Office has seen a large uptick in residents being victimized by scams, losing thousands of dollars in the process. If anyone asks you to pay for or obtain gift cards from any retailer IT IS A SCAM. Please do not become a victim yourself and be aware of the elderly in your family keeping a eye on them also. The Sheriffs Office has little ability to assist in prosecution or recovery of funds in these types of scams.
