Photo - Another day...Another Scam alert We received another complaint in reference to a scam by phone. The caller, a male subject with heavy middle-eastern accent, claimed to be from a police department in Ohio. He left a message for the resident here in Waterford talking about her son. We called the number back (567)-342-9086, and had the pleasure to speak with a female, again with a heavy middle-eastern accent, who claimed she was with the U.S. Department of Treasury. She requested information from us until we identified ourselves as police officers. She immediately hung up on us. Please do not give any personal information out over the phone from a cold call to your house or cell phone.
