A Flurry of Fraud

Jackson, Wyoming Police and Teton County Sheriff’s officers have been dealing with a rash of fraud cases over the past several days.  Police Sergeant Cole Nethercott says whether or not it is seasonally related, the incidents are definitely on the upswing.  He said the incidents range from bank frauds, where someone obtains someone’s account numbers and calls in to have money moved from one account to another, to check frauds or fraudulent money orders. While each of the cases is being investigated, Nethercott says the public’s best defense is to be suspicious of any financial contacts that they have not specifically solicited. Nethercott says, “If anyone contacts you and it is something you’re not expecting, always be suspicious of that.”  He says if someone asks for personal or banking information, don’t give that information out – especially over the phone.  Instead, he says tell them you will call them back on the number that’s published in the phone book or listed on your credit card and will speak to a representative that way. Nethercott says unfortunately, a variety of frauds are becoming more common as more information becomes available online.
