************SCAM ALERT INFORMATION***********PLEASE READ*************
 An email from the Liquor Board or staff will always have the domain name of – HOVER over the address and if that domain is not there, it is a scam email. Please see the examples below:

o   SCAM email - liquorboard

o   SECURE EMAIL -liquorboard (

·     If the Liquor Board Staff sends any payment links for payment on a virtual class or application fees it will look like this

   If you look in the search bar, you will see a PADLOCK to ensure that this is the secure link

    You will never receive an email with an invoice, zip file, password protected etc.

The Liquor Board staff has been in contact with top county officials to ensure the security of our internal email and payment links. This is happening OUTSIDE the county servers. The scammer is impersonating the liquor board and staff.

We are sharing this information to assist those who may have an uneasiness about using our virtual platform. This is now our new way of doing business due to COVID and we want our community to feel confident that the the Liquor Board has a secure network.
