(Sarpy Co., NE)  --  The Sarpy County sheriff's investigator is warning business managers in the area of a potential phone scam going around.  A donut shop manager and a coffee shop manager have both said they got a phone call recently from a number resembling their corporate office.  The person tried to convince them to take the money from their register and buy prepaid credit cards, put the money on them, and read the numbers back to them so they could withdraw it.  The donut shop claims it was scammed out of over one-thousand dollars.
