NM Residents Warned of Scam

 

Mayor Keri Lamberson wishes to warn the citizens of New Sharon of a new telephone scam that has risen up in the city. This one claims to be from the New Sharon Police to collect fines.

Mayor Lamberson said, “The New Sharon Police Department does not call and ask you to pay fines. There have been a few people that have received phone calls from someone stating they are from the New Sharon Police Department and they are requesting that this person has lots of outstanding fines that have to be paid by a certain time today.”  

This is a scam and the City of New Sharon would never call to collect fines. If you receive one of these calls, contact the New Sharon Police Department or Mahaska County Sheriff’s Office.
