Auglaize County Sheriff Warns of Scam

August 19, 2014-

Auglaize County Sheriff Al Solomon is warning people of a scam in which scammers are calling people, telling them there is a warrant out for their arrest.  The scammers tell each person the matter can be resolved by posting bond over the phone using a credit card.  Once the credit card information is obtained, the scammers use the card for purchases.  The scam has been reported in several counties.  Solomon is warning people before someone falls victim in Auglaize County.  Solomon also wants people to know the sheriff's office does not call people asking for bond money over the telephone or to tell people there is a warrant out for their arrest.
