SCAMS – MOHAVE COUNTY       

Mohave County Sheriff’s Office is warning the public of three scams. 

 The first scam is a reoccurring scam where residents have reported receiving telephone calls from a person from the IRS.  The IRS representative informs them that they owe for back taxes and must pay immediately otherwise a warrant will be issued for their arrest.  In some cases, the IRS representative will say the Sheriff will be at their residence today to arrest them.  The IRS representative strongly urges the person to pay via a credit card or to stay on the phone with them as they drive to the bank to obtain a money order or a cashier’s check.  Often these false IRS representatives have strong Indian accents.  The IRS and the Sheriff’s Office do not conduct business in this manner. 

 The second scam is also another reoccurring scam where people have received emails about being a secret shopper.  Advising money will be sent to them in a cashier's check for re-imbursement. The victim is told to keep $200 dollars for themselves and their first assignment is to Walmart and purchase two money grams. The victim is further advised to mail the money grams to two different addresses.

 The third scam is received via email which starts out very secretive, where the person sending you this email knows that someone is going to assassinate you and make it look like an accident.

This person clearly says they don’t know you and they don’t know the people who will be threatening your life, but they have a video of the recorded conversation to kill you.  This person is asking for money before they can disclose the entire plan to save your life and send you the video.   

 The Sheriff’s Office recommends hanging up on scammers that call and delete scam emails. Often, scammers will continue to entice the unsuspecting victim when they get a response via email or by staying on the telephone with them. 

These incidents are believed to be attempted scams and the Sheriff’s Office would like to caution residents.  Always be cautious when it comes to sending money, providing personal information including credit card numbers.  If you suspect fraud, contact your local law enforcement office.

Police Update on Suspicious Vehicle

The Lake Havasu City Police Department recently reported suspicious circumstances near the Starline Elementary School.  On February 6, 2015, at approximately 7:15 a.m., it was reported that a young boy told his mother that there was a boy hiding in their front yard, in the 200 block of Roundup Drive, stating that he was being followed by a white truck.  Police were able to identify the young boy that was hiding that day. The boy said he was hiding from his father because he was in trouble for attempting to ride the bus to school against his father’s wishes. The boy stated that while he was hiding, he talked to another boy and told the boy that someone was following him. Police were able to confirm this information with the parents.

 The Lake Havasu City Police Department previously received information that the driver of a white truck was taking pictures of kids with his cell phone. Further investigation revealed this information was gathered from a conversation that was overheard among several students at Starline Elementary School on February 6, 2015. Students were not able to confirm that a male subject in a white truck was taking pictures of children by the school, despite the rumors that were circulating around the school grounds.

 The students also gave a license plate number to officers on February 6, 2015, in regards to the alleged suspicious vehicle. The license plate number returned to an address in Phoenix, Arizona.  Officers from the Phoenix Police Department were able to speak with the registered owner of the vehicle who confirmed the vehicle belonged to his daughter. Both parties said they have never traveled to Lake Havasu City.

 Citizens on social media outlets also reported a white truck driving very slow near children on Tanqueray Drive and believed it may have been involved in the Roundup Drive and Starline School incidents.  Officers spoke with residents in the area and were able to find the location of the white truck. The driver of that particular white truck lived in the immediate area.  According to other residents, the vehicle always drives very slow and cautious on the residential street. There were no concerns about the driver following children or taking pictures of children.

 The police department has investigated these allegations and does not believe there is any danger to the public at this time. The police department urges parents and students to continue to be vigilant and report any suspicious activity to the police department.

 If anyone has any additional information pertaining to this investigation, they are encouraged to contact the Lake Havasu City Police Department. Anonymous information can also be called into Lake Havasu Silent Witness at 928-854-TIPS (8477).

Recently..........

 a business owner lost $1,000.00 to a scammer. It goes like this: The business owner got a call from a 602 number late on a Friday. They said they were with Unisource and there was a balance owed of 1000 dollars, and that they would have to shut the power off in 1 hour if it was not paid by getting a Green Dot money pak at Wal-Mart and calling them back with the pin numbers. The business owner panicked because they would have to close for the weekend if the power went off. The owner assumed the last check to Unisource did not clear or there was some other problem and did not verify with Unisource till it was too late.

Unfortunately it was a scam.

 Unisource would never call you to do that, nor would any other utility company do that.  Call Law enforcement if you receive any such call.
