NEW EMAIL SCAM - JULY 9, 2010
Friday, 09 July 2010 21:09

The Millard County Sheriff’s Office has been made aware of yet another scam to get the money of unsuspecting residents.  There is an email circulating that states the resident has won some money but a relative has claimed the money in Malaysia and the company has now contacted the FBI to see if in fact the subject who picked up the money is a relative.  The email comes through and looks very official and even has a copy of a passport on it.  The email asks the recipient to look at the passport and identify the person as a relative and if they are unable to do that it asks for some personal information to be emailed to them.  See the attached for further information about the email.  Sheriff Robert Dekker urges anyone who receives a message like this to contact the Millard County Sheriff’s Office and advises them to not give out any personal information.

 

 

 

 

 

Safe Tip

Con-artists are not always easy to spot. Smart, extremely persuasive, and aggressive, they invade your home through the telephone and the mail, advertise in reputable newspapers and magazines, and come to your door. Most people think they’re too smart to fall for a scam. But con artists rob all kinds of people from investment counselors and doctors to teenagers and elderly widows of billions every year. It’s up to you to say NO. Use common sense and learn about old and new scams.
