**Scam Warning**

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE06/15/2021 7:14 PM

On Tuesday, June 15th the Windham County Sheriff's Office received a report that someone had attempted to scam a local resident by claiming to be Amazon and requesting the resident provide personal information, obtain a gift card and provide the gift card number to them within a certain time period.

@windhamsheriff would like to remind residents that no no reputable business would ask that you obtain gift cards and provide them with the number to deal with purchase/account issues and to never provide personal information over the phone or internet unless you can verify whom the information is going to and what it is being used for. If something sounds fishy or to good to be true.. It likely is!

You can report suspected scam activity to the VT Attorney General's Office here https://ago.vermont.gov/cap/stopping-scams/
