Chiefland, Florida-On July 16, 2009 the Chiefland Citizen newspaper informed the Levy County Sheriff's Office of a person attempting to scam their customers.  The scammer is posing as an employee of a nonexistent business the "Chiefland Bulletin" and stating that they are updating credit card information.  The Chiefland Citizen newspaper or any reputable business will never call and inquire about personal information or credit card numbers.  If you have received any phone calls that you believe to be a scam please notify your local law enforcement agency.


You should never provide personal information which would include:


  1. Legal Name
  2. Address
  3. Date of birth
  4. Driver License number
  5. Social security number
