Sheriff impersonators, extortion scam prompts warning
HONOLULU – A recent Sheriff impersonator scam incident has prompted the Department of Public Safety Sheriff Division to put out a warning. On Tuesday, July 6, an individual contacted the Department of Public Safety and reported that she was contacted via cell phone by someone claiming to be a with a fictitious office called the “Hawaii Department of Public Safety, State Security Division.” The Sheriff impersonator stated that they wanted to send the woman four “compensation fund” checks owed to her, totaling $20,000, but first she would have to pay a hefty processing fee. The impersonator even sent a picture of a fake ID that included a Hawaii Sheriff badge logo.
The sheriff. Or them. Only not qualified to handle a computer system and put or set up anything.
I think they need to have a degree to when they do this. Like a county councilmen has to get in by age 23 and a degree so he can get paid with tax payers money. $75,000 dollars per year income. It is in the books. Like anything else.
