“Knowledge Growth” SCAM

You will be contacted by an unknown person to take a simple, non-threatening survey. You agree and answer a few questions. Suddenly, you are contacted again to take another survey and are asked to "Work" for them doing surveys. They will "TRAP" you in a very bad situation with undated checks and other monetary transaction implements. When you finally figure out what they are doing and try to quit, they use the incomplete financial implements (checks, etc) to sue you and possibly have you arrested for wire fraud, etc.

STAY AWAY from this company. They will try to entice you with a free computer and free internet. DON'T BELIEVE IT. It is a SCAM and a trap!!!!



WHEN IN DOUBT.... CHECK IT OUT !!!        Sheriff Karl J. Dailey

“Family Member Money Scam”

The Chadron Police Department has received a few calls regarding a local phone scam in our area.  People have been receiving phone calls from people claiming to be relatives of the victim.  The caller then tells the victim their family member is in trouble and needs the victim to wire money immediately via a service such as Western Union. The caller also tells the victim not to take anyone with them to wire the money or tell anyone about the money transfer.  It appears we have had at least two calls in our area where the caller advised he was the grandson of the victim and asked the victim to send them money immediately.

The Chadron Police Department has received these types of scam reports in the past and often times the caller will place a fake phone call claiming to be a police officer, a sergeant, or an investigator in order to convince you of the scam.  The amount of money typically requested is between $2000.00-$6000.00.

The Chadron Police Department is asking the public to be very cautious when they receive odd phone calls and to never volunteer information to someone over the phone and also take time to verify the request through another family member or your local law enforcement agency.  We also ask you if you have friends or relatives, who may be easily victimized by a scam like this, please speak with them and advise them there are individuals out there that wish to take advantage of their good nature.  Please report any and all suspicious phone calls to the Chadron Police Department by calling 308-432-0510.Phone scam pic 031513

“RELAY FOR LIFE” is Legit, but user may not be !!!

SCAMMERS have no shame and don't care who they hurt. With that in mind, a new twist has been added to their schemes..... RELAY FOR LIFE is a communications system designed to allow people who can not speak or hear to contact others by phone for personal and business reasons. It is done through a third party interpreter. THE BAD GUYS are using this system so there is no direct contact between them and their victims and to add some sympathetic legitimacy to their scam. You receive a call from Relay For Life and the scammer will attempt any one of a dozen scams.  So Please Be Aware---- RELAY FOR LIFE is a legitimate organization, the bad guys are just abusing it. If you feel that you have been scammed through Relay for Life, please contact them and let them know.... Remember - Be Smart-Be Careful-Be Safe.... Sheriff Karl Dailey

Well, Just so ya don't feel all alone, even Sheriff's Offices get scam stuff in their e-mail !!!  I got one today saying that an item I posted on July 1st had been returned as undeliverable and if I wanted to check on it through the Post Office Tracking System, I just needed to "click on the link" --- Well, it seemed a bit odd to me so I went to the Post Office in person and guess what ???  There was nothing there !!!  Surprise, surprise !! When I checked the "header" of the incoming e-mail, the "return path" had nothing to do with the Post Office... I'm 99% sure it was a phishing e-mail and 100% sure it was a scam........So, if you get one of these or something similar, check it out before you "click on the link" !!!   BE CAREFUL - BE SAFE- BE SMART !!      Sheriff Karl Dailey

SCAM – Northern Financial Services

Northern Financial Services (supposedly out of Albany, NY) contacts you with a LOAN OFFER that seems very easy to obtain and with very few restrictions. Well, folks - it is TOO EASY - IT's A SCAM !!!!  The loan offer will be for, lets just say, $60,000.00. The interest rate (fixed of course) is 9% -- A bit high, maybe ???  The payments are $482.79 a month for 30 years. OK, could be do-able---  Ready, now here it comes..... all they need is your personal information and for you to send them $3,896.20 (USD of course) for some kind of insurance payment. The real kicker is they want you to send it by "Western Union" !!!  I never would have guessed that one !!!!  They make it look so very official and real, but it's total hokum !!  If you need a loan, there are tons of reputable lenders out there who will be glad to work with you !!!  Always check it out !!  WHEN IN DOUBT-- CHECK IT OUT and be safe  ----- Sheriff Karl J. Dailey

I get calls about these folks every now and again. I may have written about them before, but one more time won't hurt a thing !!   CMS (Credit Management Services) is one of those businesses that provide a "legal" service, but tend to walk the "legal" line in many instances. I had a call that CMS had contacted a person about a "Past Due Bill" - The bill had been paid and the debt was several years old. On the face of it, it appears that CMS was trying to pull a fast one and "Bully" these folks into "re-paying" and old and paid bill. I was told that the CMS staff were threatening, rude, impolite and down right nasty. Well folks, you do not have to put up with that. If they contact you, get all the information from them you can and give them "As Little information About You" as you can. Then, CHECK IT OUT !!!!  Do not take their word for anything !!   Check out the bill. Check out the company that claims you owe them. Check everything you can...... Then if you owe the money, try to work with the company you owe the money to. Get receipts for everything you can and get as much in writing as you can.   Then, if you need to, contact an attorney and let them deal with CMS.... Be Smart - Be Aware and Be Careful !!!    Sheriff Karl Dailey

You get a phone call offering better interest rates on your credit card. They want a ton of information from you and while they are talking, you notice that the area code on your CALLER ID is -- 062 --- or some other strange number -- 062 is an INDONESIA area code.... Take a wild guess ???? A SCAM MAYBE !!!?? You bet it is..... You can call your credit card people and try to negotiate a better interest rate (good luck!) BUT, they will not call you. They may send you regular mail with an offer of some type, but not an e-mail and not a phone call ---- so, when you get a call like this, look at your caller ID and check the area code and prefix...... better yet, JUST SAY NO and hang up..... Be Aware - Be Careful - Be Safe -- Sheriff Karl Dailey

You receive an e-mail from someone (in this case- claiming to be from a cable or satellite TV provider (again, in this case Great Plains Communications). The grammar, spelling, sentence structure, etc. are terrible and they want your User name - Password - DOB (?) and Country or Territory .... WHY????   Because they are doing some kind of work on their system and they do not want your e-mail account interrupted -- Gee, ain't they nice !!! ??    IT'S A SCAM !!!   Remember - Be Aware, Be Careful, Be Safe !!!   Sheriff Karl Dailey
