Fraud Alerts

Sheriff Tim Guider of the Loudon County Sheriff’s Office wants the public to be aware of a current scam that is being conducted throughout the County. Some residences are being sent a letter from CONSUMER AFFAIRS GROUP, INC. stating that they have been chosen to participate in a consumer research program. The program is designed as a secret shopper. Enclosed with the letter will be a check usually for the amount of $2,925.00. The company then wants the person to cash the check and pay themselves $400.00. The letter also states that $50.00 will be used for purchases at Wal-Mart and J C Penny’s. The company then wants the employee to MONEY GRAM THE REST OF THE MONEY BACK). The check that is issued is under a fraudulent account and is worthless even though it looks authentic. You will then be responsible for the bad check. If you get a letter or a check similar to this DO NOT CASH THE CHECK. Instead call the Loudon County Sheriff’s Office. This is an on going fraud that has also occurred in other counties.
