Noble County warns of scam

If you receive a phone call from someone who claims to be a relative in a jam in another country, be wary that it could be a scam.

Noble County has recently seen multiple cases in which victims have lost thousands of dollars to such scams, according to the sheriff's department.

The scammers, who target elderly residents, have posed as family members who need specific amounts of money wired to them in Mexico so they can be released from jail. Some calls have involved additional people on the line pretending to be officials.

The sheriff's department said residents who receive such calls should take pains to make sure the person on the phone is actually a relative. The department suggests contacting another family member who would know whether the relative allegedly on the phone is really outside the country.
