Fake social media accounts impersonating Dearborn officials – Press and Guide

The City of Dearborn is alerting residents to a social media scam to impersonate elected officials and defraud Dearborn residents, and some non-Dearborn residents as well.


The fake accounts are contacting community members via social media channels and impersonating government officials such as the chief of police or members of the City Council. The purpose of these activities is to leverage personal information about residents or their households to phish for personal, financial, or identity information in order to commit fraud.


If you receive a message like this, immediately block and report the account. Government agencies and elected officials will never call, email, direct message, or text you to ask for money or personal information.
