Scammers targeting Sarpy County residents

Date: 
June 14, 2019

Scammers targeting Sarpy County residents are using a spoofed phone number to pose as the Sarpy County Treasurer’s Office.
 
The caller claims to be an employee of the Treasurer’s Office, then falsely tells people they have a bill due that can be paid over the phone with a credit card.
 
The Treasurer’s Office phone number is also being spoofed by scammers promoting fake credit card offers.
 
The Sarpy County Treasurer’s Office typically contacts residents by letter or email. Though employees will occasionally call residents with questions, they will never ask for a credit card number over the phone.
 
If you believe you’ve been the victim of a scam, contact the Sarpy County Sheriff’s Office.
