WARREN, Ohio (WYTV) – There’s a new phone scam going around and it directly involves the Trumbull County Sheriff’s Office.
Sheriff Paul Munroe says scammers are calling people — pretending to be with his agency.
They tell the victim they’re in trouble for not appearing in court and owe money — $500 to be exact.
They’re asking victims to pay in a very specific way — Green Dot Cards. This is a form of payment you can get at the Dollar Store.
Sheriff Munroe says this is a scam.
If you receive this kind of call report it to the Trumbull County Sheriff’s Office. The number is (330) 675-2508.
