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.

    Not long ago, I saw a message on one of the hunting blogs I like to read. The writer wanted hunters to send in accounts of disasters they’d had in the field. I bet he got swamped with emails. Every hunter I know has had at least one calamity in the woods. If you hunt, […]

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
