Richland Warning of Potential Scam

The city of Richland has issued a warning about a scam that is circulating. Details from the city are below:


Recently there has been a circulation of fraudulent emails suggesting the City of Richland is requesting nominations/selections for an award called the 2013 Best of Richland.  The email provides you with categories and suggestions on who to vote for. They even go so far as providing links to legitimate Facebook pages. Finally you will be linked to a website that will request money from you. 

The Richland Police Department wants all residents to know this is a scam.  It is not affiliated with the City of Richland, or area businesses or non-profits. Please do not link to this site, or process funds as it requests. 

If you have any questions regarding this please contact Sgt. Ver Steeg at 509-942-7545.
