On the evening of May 30, 2018, the Clark County Sheriff's Office was notified of a possible phone scam where the individuals were representing themselves as the Sheriff and Deputies of the Clark County Sheriff's Office.  The person receiving the call is greeted by a male subject that identifies himself and Sheriff (Random Name) of the Clark County Sheriff's Office.  This person then tries to solicit cash donations for the department.  Investigators have looked into this and have discovered that the phone number the call is originating from, (937)-540-0041, is a spoofed number out of Belgium.  The Clark County Sheriff's Office would like to warn the public of this scam and make sure that they are aware that at no time will the Clark County Sheriff's Office make calls to solicit donations.  If you receive a call from any individual requesting a donation for the Clark County Sheriff's Office, please do not give them any personal information or any bank account information and contact the real Clark County Sheriff's Office at (937)-328-2560.
