The Henderson Police Department wants the public to keep an eye out for a new scam. 

The suspects are falsely representing themselves as employees of the business Wolverine Services and scamming citizens.

The suspects held fake meetings in Southern Nevada between July 9 and Aug. 5 for the purpose of gathering IDs and Social Security information. The victims of the scams thought they were being offered employment opportunities.

Wolverine Services is an Alaska-based company with headquarters in Colorado. Victims were told they were being interviewed by Wolverine Services for a new location opening in Las Vegas.

The president of Wolverine Services contacted police and advised that they are not opening a Las Vegas location and that the company did not give anyone permission to make job offers on its behalf.

There is currently no evidence that the personal information obtained from victims has been used unlawfully.

Henderson Police want residents who may have provided their information during meetings to monitor their credit and immediately report any fraudulent transactions.

The Henderson Police Department can be contacted at 702-267-4750.
