Bellefontaine Police Department Issues Scam Alert


The Bellefontaine Police Department reports that over the last week, their agency has received several reports of citizens falling victim to scams.

These reports indicated suspects advised the victims of money they had won, or they were going to assist them in some way.

They were able to get the victims to send them numerous gift card numbers as a result.

Please do not fall victim to these scammers.

Anytime someone is promising you something in return for payment where they are asking you to send them gift cards, or other form of payment such as Western Union, Money Gram, or other odd form of payment, please be very suspicious.

A company/business will not ask you to do this.
