Fostoria Police Department Reports Phone Scam

2/28/18 – 5:19 A.M.

Fostoria residents recently received a rash of scam phone calls. A post on the police department’s Facebook page says someone is calling people and claiming to raise money for the department. The post says the phone number has a 419 area-code. The person on the other end of the line says they are raising money for fallen officers.

The post says, “at no time have we, or will we; call you and solicit money. If you wish to donate to such charities, we recommend you research before giving anything.”
