The Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office alerts the public of an imposter scam claiming you’ve won a prize. But you can’t claim it until you send money. Don’t wire money to collect a prize. If you have to pay, it’s not a prize. They urge you to report any scam solicitation calls to your local law enforcement agency or call the FBCSO 9-1-1 Dispatch at 281-341-4665 or the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) at 1-877-382-4357 or reportfraud.ftc.gov/ #/.
Your report just might protect other citizens and help identify and stop the imposters. Protect your community by reporting fraud, scams, and bad business practices. The FTC can detect fraud patterns from the information collected and share that data with law enforcement.
