Richland officials say an e-mail that’s been circulating recently about a supposed 2013 Best of Richland contest is fraudulent.
“The e-mail 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,” a city news release said.
But, the release said, “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.”
