The Polk County Sheriff’s Office received a report of a scam regarding cash loans.
The way the scam works is victims will receive an email from an alleged debt-collection attorney which states that a lawsuit has been filed against the individual for failure to pay a loan.
The email is very detailed with alleged company names, file numbers, loan account numbers, and dates. There is also an invoice attached to the email which includes payment options.
The Polk County Sheriff’s Office has determined this to be a scam and asks the public to not correspond to the email or send any payments.
