Sheriff Warns of Phone Scam

DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) -- Authorities in eastern Iowa are warning residents about a phone scam.
   The Scott County Sheriff's Office says a resident was recently contacted by a suspicious caller. The caller claimed there was a warrant out for the resident's arrest and demanded money to dismiss it.
   The caller told the resident to go to a store to buy a money card to settle a $400 fee. A vigilant store clerk stopped the resident.
   Authorities say no law enforcement agency would request a money card from a person in that circumstance. All fines must be paid at the court clerk's office.
