Spot holiday scams


Carbon County Undersheriff Archie Roybal warned of holiday scams this season, saying that any unexpected requests that ask for credit card information or money orders and warn that “time is of the essence” should be regarded as suspicious.

Suspicious activity should be reported to the Carbon County Sherriff’s Office. Scams that have been reported usually come by letter or phone call, Roybal said.

According to a newsletter issued by the Sheriff’s office, scams identified so far include police impersonation, jury duty, IRS, lottery, winning checks and Rocky Mountain Power scams.
