If you received an email recently from Lewis County Sheriff David Parrish, president of the Missouri Sheriffs’ Association, don’t respond!
It’s a hoax.
The email states:
Are you available to assist? I am out of the State now and I’ve got credence in you to take care of this.I would have called your phone but I presently do not have access to my mobile phone.
Missouri Sheriffs’ Association needs some gift cards for donation to Veterans at Hospice and Palliative care units for preventive items against Corona Disease( COVID 19).
I have decided to make it a personal duty. I will be responsible for the reimbursement.
The sending email address shows up as firstname.lastname@example.org.
MSA Executive Director Kevin Merritt said recipients should delete the email without responding.
