Pasco County Clerk & Comptroller Nikki Alvarez-Sowles has issued a warning to the public to be on the lookout for fake checks that appear to be coming from Pasco County government.
Crooks are creating checks that look like they’ve been issued by the county, according to a posting on the clerk’s website.
If you think you’ve received a fake check from the county, the clerk’s office asks that you do not try to cash or deposit it. Instead, recipients of such checks should contact the clerk’s office at 352- 521-4566, Option 3, or 727-847-2411, ext. 4566.
