OTTAWA COUNTY, Mich. — The Ottawa County Sheriff's Office is warning residents about repeated attempts to use the department's name in attempted scams.

According to the Sheriff's Office, many scams try to get money from victims by claiming to be from law enforcement. Many calls will request payment for outstanding warrants, bonds, or other court fees. The Sheriff's Office says it will never make such calls.
