GARLAND COUNTY, AR (KAIT) -

An Arkansas county treasurer wants to warn other treasurers about an email he calls a scam.

According to a report by KATV, Garland County Treasurer Tim Stockdale came across an email from Garland County Judge Rick Davis.

The email asked him to make payments and Stockdale said it actually looked convincing but he noticed that the email address was not from his boss.

“The return e-mail address said Rick Davis, but the actual e-mail was commissioner_office@aol.com,” said Stockdale. “We obviously don’t have commissioners.”

Stockdale told the Arkansas Attorney General’s Office and found he wasn’t the only one that has received the email.

One of them even fell for it. Click here, for more information on that.
