Officials from Green Township in Ross County are warning residents of a scam. Township Trustee Marcella Wolf says they've received reports of a person soliciting money on behalf of the fire department: "But Green Township Fire Department doesn't solicit for funds nor sell signs in person, so if anybody does get a knock on the door or place of business trying to collect money for Green Township Fire Department, it is definitely not us."
Trustees have also received a report of a person selling reflective signs and issuing receipts.
"We don't sell those door-to-door either," said Wolfe, "but if anybody does have a receipt for a sign . . ., we will certainly honor that even though it might have been someone taking the money and not really on behalf of Green Township."
She says those who might encounter this scam should contact the Sheriff's Department or call her at 740.649.9048.
