Sheriff's Office News

Tips to avoid becoming a victim of a scam:

  • Never give your personal identification information over the phone or computer
  • You may make an exception if you initiated the call or contact, and you are certain that you are talking to a trustworthy employee of a trustworthy business
  • Never wire money to anyone claiming to be a police officer to get out of an arrest, etc.
  • Never wire money to get more money back (sweepstakes or lottery), or help someone get out of a bad situation such as an arrest, or a broken down vehicle (especially if the person requesting the money is not known to you personally, or the person called and claimed to be a distant relative, etc.)
  • If something doesn’t feel right – pay attention to your instincts and don’t become a victim
