The Hancock County Sheriff’s Office wants you to know about a scam that has popped up in the area. Sheriff Michael Heldman says potential victims have been targeted over email. The scammers will identify themselves as a family member or friend. They’ll go on to say they took a trip overseas, and their belongings were misplaced or taken. They then ask you to send them money so they can get home.
Heldman says not to send money and to ignore the email.
If you think you’ve been victimized by the scam, call the sheriff’s office at (419)424-7097.Read More →
