School Resource Officer/Deputy Sheriff Mike Lewis informed us he has investigated a call from a local business in Chillicothe. That business had received a phone solicitation from a person claiming to be selling ads for Chillicothe Schools and the Chillicothe Basketball Sectionals.
According to Deputy Lewis this call was a scam regarding representing Chillicothe Schools and the basketball sectionals. The caller was wanting to sell business ads for $400.
Additional businesses have been contacted and person(s) were trying to sell a variety of advertising packages for Chillicothe School Sports and their baseball program. The calls are frequently coming from a private number or an out of state area code.
If you get such a call please report any number to local law enforcement and do not become a crime victim.
