The Clark County Sheriff’s Office has received multiple reports from citizens of Clark County claiming they have been contacted by someone conducting an ongoing phone scam. 

In this scam, the caller is claiming to be a sergeant with the Clark County Sheriff’s Office, stating that the person receiving the call has unpaid fines and they are requesting large sums of money to settle the debt. The caller threatens the person by saying they will be subject to arrest if the fines are not paid immediately.

The Clark County Sheriff’s Office will never call members of the public requesting any form of payment. If you receive a call as part of this scam, do not give them any money, and hang up the phone. There is no need to contact the Clark County Sheriff’s Office unless you have provided them money or feel you are the victim of a crime. 

Information provided by Clark County Sheriff’s Office.

Scammers are scum of the earth. They prey on the vulnerable and seniors. This one is an old scam. They used to tell the victim that if they did not send the money a deputy would come to their home. This scares people and it’s cruel. Blow a whistle into the phone and hang up!!
