On Friday September 16, 2016, Multnomah County informed the public and our clients of a scam targeting clients on parole and probation.  After a thorough investigation, it has been concluded that there is no evidence that a Multnomah County system was compromised.

The Multnomah County Department of Community Justice has contacted all clients under supervision, set up a hotline resource and followed up with those who have concerns.

The county values and respects the privacy of our clients personal information.  Anyone who suspects they are a victim of fraud should take steps to protect their personal information by contacting their bank and monitoring their credit reports.
