Erie County Clerk Mickey Kearns is warning residents of a phone scam where incoming calls will show up on caller ID as coming from the Erie County Clerk’s Office.
The scammer will then request personal information while proposing to offer debt relief services.
According to Kearns, the office will never make unsolicited calls to people and don’t provide the services offered in these calls. They will also not request personal information unless necessary for a customer initiated transaction at the Clerk’s Office or the Auto Bureau.
Residents that receive this call are urged to ignore the call and any voice message left on the device.
