A new phone scam has been making its rounds in Morrow County. The phone scam is disguised as a local business, residential and village office phone number. Mount Gilead residents have reported that they received phone calls that appear to be from a legitimate caller, but they are not.
The numbers are hard to track because they sometimes route the number through other countries.
Mount Gilead Police Chief Brian Zerman advises hanging up on them and not providing any information.
