Sheriff issues scam warning

Sheriff issues scam warning

Sheriff Bittick warns Monroe Countians about a scam making its way through Georgia.

He says scammers have found a new way to take victims' money.

Read the full release from the Monroe County Sheriff's Office:

A new scam is making its way through Georgia and Sheriff John Cary Bittick is warning all citizens not to fall victim to this most recent scam.

As with most scams, the latest involves the victim turning money over to a stranger. But since most victims have learned the hard way that money shouldn’t be wired or transferred to an unknown bank account or banking institution, scammers have found a new way to take victims’ money.

Spring Fling Day 22: Pet Supplies

Today let’s fling Fido and Fluffy’s stuff.  It’s time to fling those too small collars and bowls, treats that the cat just will not eat and the frayed leashes. If you have supplies from a long gone pet, like an aquarium or a hamster habitat, today is the day to let those go.

 

Now go flinging!  Please come back and tell me how many pet supplies you were able to fling today.
