The Vance County Sheriff’s Office would like to make the public aware of some recent trends that the agency has noticed.
From May 4, 2020, to the present, the Vance County Sheriff’s Office has received approximately nine incident reports that relate to Identity Fraud/Theft, Credit Card Fraud, Obtaining Property by False Pretense and Forgery. It appears that most of the investigations have some international ties to different countries.
The public should be mindful that if you receive a request from an unknown person or persons asking you to buy gas cards or supply them with your Social Security Card, banking information or purchasing animals through Paypal, you could be getting scammed.
We want to encourage the members of our community to be mindful of their financial transactions and ask that you do not provide personal information over the phone.
If you have any questions, please contact the Vance County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigation Division at (252) 738–2200.
