Announcing Third Thursdays!

Join your fellow members, governance, and staff of the PSEA Southwestern Region for the Third Thursday Happy Hour!  

Scam Alert Targeting Public School Employees

The Pennsylvania State Police, Troop A - Greensburg is investigating several reports of Theft by Deception, in which, an unidentified person contacts local school district main offices via telephone.  This actor(s) has commonly identified themself as Deputy Wayne FARLEY of the Westmoreland County Sheriff’s Department.  The actor(s) orders the victim to drive to the nearest Sheetz gas station to purchase two green dot gift cards totaling approximately $1,000.  If the purchase is completed, the actor(s) will demand that the victim read off the gift card information in order to pay of court costs and fines. 

On several of these incidents, the actor(s) has demanded to the victim to stay on the cell phone while they complete the transaction in store.

This scam has been documented nationwide for the last several years. 

If you should receive this call AND/OR anything similar, hang up and disregard it completely.  Police departments WOULD NEVER contact individuals and request payment of fines or court costs over the telephone.

These scammers have recently targeted at least 4 public school employees from Westmoreland County within the last week.  It is not known how the scammers have accessed the victim’s personal information (family members, address, cell phone number etc.).

Thank you for any assistance you could offer.
