Sheriff's Office Warns of Recent Scams
No NIH Grants and the Sheriff isn't calling you!!!
DO NOT FALL VICTIM TO SCAMMERS TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THE COVID-19 EPIDEMIC
E-mail scammers are taking advantage of the chaos wrought by the pandemic to trick folks into
clicking into e-mails that they normally wouldn’t do, etc. Please be vigilant.
If you receive an e-mail, text, or social media message that asks you to click on a link,
you almost certainly shouldn't.
Look at the email address and make sure it is the person's address that shows as the name.
Likewise, if you get an email asking you to buy something or send money etc., please call that
person directly
(do not by reply email) to confirm that it’s real.
THIS IS A SPECIAL PAGE OF OUR WEBSITE WARNING ABOUT THE HIGH INCIDENCE OF FRAUD DURING THIS EMERGENCY
Valuable advice from John Whitfield

From phone and email scams to imposter
fraud, see how they operate. These are no
small-time hustlers but well organized and
professionally staffed crime organizations.
If you get a call, email, text or social media message saying the Internal Revenue
Service needs money or some personal information before sending your
income-tax refund or stimulus payment, don't respond. It's a scam.

you know what it does with your
