County Sheriff's Office is warning residents of a scam involving someone
impersonating a deputy.
County Sheriff John Tharp says many residents have received calls from someone
claiming to be a Lucas County deputy. The person tells them to make a payment
so an outstanding warrant will go away. They request payments in the form of
Green Dot cards.
not make phone calls to folks to tell them they have an outstanding warrant or
they owe money," said Sheriff Tharp. "We would never do that."
sheriff says if you receive a call like that, you should hang up right away,
then call 911 and report it.
they would really want to prey on the seniors, so we have to take care of our
families and make sure everyone is aware," Tharp said.
the impersonator has also posed as an Ottawa County deputy and a Toledo police
sheriff says no one has sent the scammer any money.
