Cayuga County Sheriff warning community of scammer posing as the county government

Local News

Cayuga County Sheriff David Gould is warning county residents of a new scam going around, where locals receive an email from the government asking for money.

The email appears with an official-looking letterhead from the county, asking the recipient to donate to a GoFundMe page. 

Gould says the Cayuga County government does NOT solicit donations or requests support of GoFundMe campaigns. 

Those who receive the email are asked not to respond to it– do not provide any personal information or donations. 

A sample of the email can be seen here or below:
