Sheriff's website is 'spoofed' in email
The Kern County Sheriff’s Office reported that a “spoofed” variation of the K.C.S.O’s e-mail address is being used in a “phishing” attempt to gain access to recipients’ bank account information.
E-mails have been received from the “kernsheriff.org” domain requesting persons click a link to access their “Chase” bank account.
Clicking on any of these links may result in your personal information being stolen. If anyone in the public receives e-mails from the “kernsheriff.org” domain with a request to access financial information, do not click on any of these links and delete the e-mail immediately. These e-mails are not coming from the Kern County Sheriff’s Office.
