Brewster Co - The Brewster County Sheriff's Office has a scam for its residents.
They've been getting reports that a person is calling people around the county claiming to be with a large corporation and send authentic looking documents, including a check for several million dollars.
The scam may also say you won an expensive car, such a Mercedes Benz. After you call the number given, they will ask you to send back taxes pertaining to the prize you have won, in the form of money cards, in denominations of $500.00 each.
If you have received any documents such as these please do not call the number listed and do not send any money. Investigations confirm the scam is originating from Jamaica.
