Fraudulent Email Scam Alert has been issued by the Dare County Sheriff's Office

Dare County Schools has notified the Dare County Sheriff’s Office that an email was sent out to school employees that appeared to be from Dr. S. Burgess.

The email was requesting a copy of the employees’ W2 and other pertinent information, states a media release from the Dare County Sheriff’s Office.

The Dare County Schools Finance Officer notified Dr. Burgess of the suspicious email. It was verified that no such authorized email was sent out from that office.

Last year a similar email was sent and the fraud was attempted from the Virginia Tidewater area.

Phishing is when people on the internet attempt to commit fraud by impersonating a business or other entity to trick you into giving out your personal information, reports the Sheriff’s Office.

“Do not reply, email, text or call the person that asks for your personal and/or financial information. Do not click the links within the email either, even if the message appears to be from an organization you trust. Legitimate businesses do not ask you to send your sensitive information through unsecured channels, such as email,” states the media release.
