EATON — A new telephone scam in Ohio has prompted the Preble County Sheriff's Office to issue a warning Friday and ask residents to alert authorities if they believe they've received any suspicious calls.
According to Sheriff Mike Simpson, the scam works this way:
Simpson said that under no circumstances would a sheriff's office or law enforcement agency contact anyone by phone and demand payment using a credit card.
He said sheriffs throughout Ohio are warning residents to not provide any information to a caller asking for credit card information.
