Police say a number of locals in the city have reported these scammers.
The Chillicothe Police Department is cautioning the community about a money-order scam. Police say they've received reports from multiple victims who are receiving money orders from a “secret shopper” organization. The victims are asked to complete a series of steps, cash the money orders, and deposit them into their bank accounts.
Those who are sending the money orders are using this information to access the victims' bank accounts.
Police say the scammers are using the access as a way to empty the victims' accounts.
