Sheriff Warns to be Wary of Scams
By Sheriff Paul Hays
If you think something is too good to be true, DON'T BELIEVE IT. A very good citizen called me recently to report he had received a call telling him he had just won over two million dollars with Publishers Clearing House. They told him to send $1500.00 to fill an identity bond and he would receive the money. Fortunately, he knew this was a scam to steal money from him and reported the incident to me. The phone number of the caller indicated he was from outside the country. The information was forwarded to the FBI and Secret Service. Many people throughout our country are being ripped off by outlaws such as the ones who called this man. Don't fall prey to this kind of scam. If you send the money, you can be sure the money will be gone forever. If you give any identifying information, your bank account and all your financial information may be compromised.
