Scammers use mail to target Jackson Co victims

(KAIR)--Scammers return to the basics, using the United States Postal Service to deliver their attempts at gaining fast cash.

Jackson County Sheriff Tim Morse says on Friday, his office “was notified by multiple residences of a scam by mail,” with Morse, in a release, adding that “the residents received a letter where the writer addresses himself as an attorney and a partner in a financial organization,” explaining that “there is over 10 million dollars in unclaimed payable on death accounts. The person desires the recipient of the letter to partner with him to claims these monies.”

Morse, in the release, says his office “advises residents that this is a scam and not to partake or make contact with the sender,” adding that no personal or financial information should ever be given to anyone you are unfamiliar with.
