ORLEANS COUNTY, N.Y. (WKBW) — The Orleans County Sheriff's Office is currently investigating reports of ghost phone calls that appear to be coming from the Sheriff's Office non-emergency phone number.

The caller claims to be an Orleans County Sheriff Deputy and requests personal information from the people they call, such as social security numbers.

If you receive a call from anyone identifying themselves as an Orleans County Deputy, do not provide any personal information. That is not how the Sheriff's Office conducts investigations, so you should call 911 if this happens to you.
