Scams

Sheriff Robert Bolcik asks county residents to be alert for a scam that targets widows and widowers.

Survivors of recently deceased individuals are told they have won money. In order to collect, the individual must purchase a money order to process the claim. The sheriff said he has received a number of calls from concerned residents.

“Under no circumstance should you send money to anyone,” Bolcik said. “These scam artists are preying on elderly survivors. Please call the sheriff’s office and let us handle it.”

Bolcik says “if an offer seems too good to be true, it probably is.”

The sheriff also warned of a rash of car burglaries. As a precaution, he asks residents to not leave any valuables in their vehicles during the county fair and rodeo.
