SCAM NOTIFICATION

Some residents of Izard County have received a check in the amount of $3,850 which they are asked to deposit in their bank account that  will supposedly cover a processing fee that you are asked to pay  that will enable one to receive a  grand prize of $255,000.  The company letterhead indicates they are Nova Capital Financial Services out of Los Angeles, California.  The check is written on the account of Weatherford U. S., L.P. with a Houston, Texas post office box.  The envelope these documents were mailed in shows a return address of New York City.  Sheriff Tate Lawrence said these documents are clearly a scam and just a way for some criminals to take your hard earned money.  Sheriff Lawrence strongly recommends that you not respond to this too good to be true officer.  If it sounds too good to be true, then it likely is such.
