Sheriff warns of scam
PRINCETON — Bureau County Sheriff John Thompson has issued a scam alert dealing with emails allegedly sent by the Federal Bureau of Investigation to private citizens.
Thompson said a local resident has contacted him about an email received, supposedly from the Federal Bureau of Investigations. The initials “FBI” are prominently displayed within the document and are intended to try to establish credibility for the recipient, but that’s not the reality, the sheriff said.
“I encourage our citizens of Bureau County and the adjacent communities to simply delete any documents of this nature,” Thompson said.
