Sheriff and County Clerk warn of phone scam

By Sheriff Josh Brockman
Adair County Sheriff's Office

On Thursday, March 11, 2021, I was contacted by Adair County Clerk Lisa Greer about a potential scam.

This morning, Greer was contacted by a resident of Adair County who stated that she was contacted by a male subject who claimed they represented the Adair County Clerk's Office and that her credit card wasn't working correctly and she had to pay a sum of cash immediately or her driver's license would be revoked.

The County Clerk's Office would never ask you for your bank information over the phone and they do not have the authority to cancel your operator's license, as they deal with vehicle licensure. In addition, the Clerk's Office does not have any men employed at this time.

Clerk Greer and I would like to remind everyone to be mindful of these scams. No government entity is going to ask you what your personal identification is as they already have access to it. If something seems off it usually is.
