Butte-Silver Bow Sheriff Ed Lester said Friday that Butte citizens have been approached by scammers seeking supposed bail.

According to Lester, locals have reported receiving a phone call from a long distance number and the caller indicates a relative is currently in jail. The caller then requests that bail money be sent via Western Union to an address in New York to bail out the relative.
