Scam Warning
The Bullhead City Police Department is warning the public about prize notification and secret shopper scams.
     Locals have reported receiving a package (usually from outside of the country) stating they’ve been selected to purchase items at a business. The envelope includes instructions and check/s for significant amounts of money to cover expenses. They are then urged to make selected purchases after cashing the illegitimate check and directed to wire money back to the company.
There are legitimate mystery shopper jobs. Some tips for verifying their authenticity include:
·         Legitimate secret shopper companies generally do not advertise for jobs or through unsolicited emails or mail.  
·         Scams often “guarantee” a job and ask for fees. It is not necessary to pay any fee to apply for a legitimate job.
·         Scammers usually offer large sums of money in the form of fake checks to entice victims.
·         Use caution when dealing with any company that does not have an established office.
·         Check with the Better Business Bureau to investigate any business offering this sort of employment.
·         Do not depend on the funds from any cashier's check until your bank has verified its authenticity. Legitimate checks can take up to 10 days to verify. Until then, the victim could be held financially responsible.
A secret shopper scam is similar to prize notification and lottery scams. If it’s too good to be true, it probably is! Many locals have received letters or phone calls stating they’ve won a lottery (again, usually outside of the country) or a prize. They are then required to make a payment for “taxes,” “fee” or “conversion of currency” in order to claim their prize or lottery winnings.
Here are ‘red flags’ to help residents identify this scam, courtesy of the Arizona Attorney General’s Office:
·         If you did not buy a lottery ticket, you did not win the lottery.
·         You are asked to wire money to another country or another state to cover fees, taxes etc.
·         You are urged to send money immediately or the prize will be lost.
·         You are asked to keep your winnings a secret.
·         You are asked for your bank account information so the prize can be deposited directly into your account.

** MCSO Shoots Armed Suspect **
On Sunday, September 4th, at about 12:25am, a deputy with the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office shot and killed an armed suspect after responding to a reported home invasion in the 3100blk Thompson Ave.  The deputy had responded to the Thompson Ave. residence after MCSO received a 911 call from a woman at the residence saying that a male suspect had forced entry into her home and was attacking her 15 year old son.  The suspect, who was shot and killed, was identified as William Patrick Bonnee, 30 of Kingman.
The shooting is being investigated by detectives from the Kingman Police Department at the request of Mohave County Sheriff Tom Sheahan.  It was reported to investigators that Bonnee began beating on a side door of the home.  When the home’s occupant answered the door she was confronted by Bonnee.  She immediately called for her 15 year old son, who grabbed a broom handle and began fending off Bonnee who was armed with a metal pipe.   The woman called 911 while her son was able to fend off the attack and distract Bonnee, leading him out the front door of the home.  The boy was struck several times with the pipe.  Once outside Bonnee stayed standing in the street until the arrival of the MCSO deputy.  William Bonnee, holding a 5’ metal pipe, began to approach the deputy.  Bonnee refused multiple commands by the deputy to drop the weapon and began to aggressively charge at the deputy.  The deputy drew his weapon and fired, shooting Bonnee multiple times, killing him.   
  A neighbor reported seeing Bonnee beating a dog in the back yard with a metal pipe before he began beating on the victim’s door.
            It was learned that MCSO had contacted Bonnee earlier in the night at a different residence during a disturbance call for a noise complaint.
A reason for the home invasion and attack has not been established It appears to be random..  The victim’s of the home invasion do not know William Bonnee and had never seen him before.   It is believed that Bonnee was heavily intoxicated at the time. William Bonnee has an extensive criminal history and has multiple arrests by local area law enforcement.
Assisting detectives with investigation are investigators from the Mohave County Medical Examiner’s Office.
The MCSO deputy, who’s name is not being released, is 25 years old and has been with MCSO for 3 ½ years, assigned to uniformed patrol.   He has been placed on administrative leave during the investigation, which is standard practice in officer involved shootings.
The 15 year victim old was treated at KRMC for minor injuries.  The mother was not injured in the attack.
