AURORA | The Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office warned dating site surfers Thursday not to engage scammers impersonating the Aurora-area law enforcement office.
The Sheriff’s Office said on Twitter Thursday that a scammer is impersonating the agency on dating site Plenty of Fish. The scammer is making “serious threats or demanding money from members” and using multiple cell phone numbers, officials said.
“Do not call them back!” the agency said on Twitter.
