NEW MEXICO (KRQE) – Bernalillo County has new security measures in place to make sure taxpayer dollars stay within the county. But, this comes after it sent more than $ 447,000 to a fraudulent bank account in Texas late last year.
“We’re on very high alert and we’ve learned from it. Unfortunately, we had to go be the victim of something like this. But, we have learned from it and we’re doing all sorts of things and high alert security measures,” Dinah Esquivel, Director of the county’s Procurement and Business Services department said.
