The Churchill County Sheriff’s Office and Fallon Police Department have handled multiple fraudulent calls in the past two days wherein the caller says he is with the Churchill County Sheriff’s Office and asks for or demands money. As of this time no victims are known to have fallen for the scam.
The Churchill County Sheriff’s Office does not fund-raise and at no time will we be calling people asking for or demanding money. DO NOT transfer any money if you receive such a call. Report the fraud and call to your local law enforcement.
