Clergy Gift Card Scams Continues

The Sheriff's Office has received more reports regarding a scammer impersonating a local priest and soliciting gift cards. This is an ongoing issue that requires vigilance. We urge everyone to exercise caution and remain skeptical when approached for contributions or financial assistance.

It is unfortunate that scammers continue to exploit the generosity of our community. Remember, legitimate organizations and individuals will not typically request gift cards or money through unsolicited phone calls or messages. If you receive such a request, verify the identity of the person or organization through trusted channels before taking any action. Your safety and financial well-being are our top priorities. If you receive a suspicious call, contact us at 845 225-4500. We appreciate your cooperation in helping us combat these fraudulent activities.
