Adult Probation and Parole Scam Alert

Please be advised that scammers are locally targeting those individuals who must register with Megan’s Law. Scammers use a spoofing ID# that gives the appearance that the incoming call is coming from 299-8181 (Lancaster County Adult Probation’s main phone number), and is from Mark Wilson (Chief, Lancaster County Adult Probation). The message informs the receiver that they have an outstanding bench warrant and gives them a number to call to rectify the situation. Please be advised that these calls are NOT coming from APPS, and no one should call the number indicated in the message. 

If you’ve received such a call, please contact Adult Probation and Parole at 717-299-8181 and ask to speak to a supervisor.
