A call was made claiming to be the department collecting funds for their DUI program
The Ross County Sheriff Department has received a phone call from a local resident telling them she had just received a call from a male subject stating he was from the Ross County Sheriff's Office and that he was taking donations for this Office for our DUI program.
The department does not solicit funds for these programs and would like to be notified if people receive calls like this.
Sheriff Deputy Dave Weber says there are many scams out there and all residents need to be aware of these.
Do not give your personal information over the phone and on the computer. If you are contacted and asked for money be sure to check the organization out before donating any money to them.
