[ARCHIVED] Misleading Telemarketers Continue Soliciting Lake County Residents

Waukegan, IL – The Lake County Sheriff’s Office continues to receive numerous calls from the public stating fundraisers, identifying themselves as representing the Lake County Sheriff’s Office, are soliciting for donations/and or pledges via phone calls and mailings.

The Lake County Sheriff’s Office does not make phone calls or send mailings soliciting money from the public.

If you receive a call from a telemarketer identifying herself/himself as calling on behalf of the Sheriff’s Office, be advised the call was not approved by the Lake County Sheriff’s Office. If you receive a mailing, you can forward the mailing to the Lake County Sheriff's Office, 25 S Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue, Waukegan, 60085. Our office is currently working with the Illinois Attorney General’s Office on this matter, to ensure the public is not intentionally/or unintentionally misled.

If you would like to report the call or mailing, contact our Criminal Investigations Division at 847-377-4250.
