COLUMBIA CITY â€” Whitley Countyâ€™s Sheriffâ€™s Department is warning residents of another phone scam that has been reported locally.
WCSD Chief Deputy Marc Gatton said a concerned citizen reported the scam, which was like many others in that the caller requested money.
However, this time, the caller already knew much of the victimâ€™s personal information.
Sheriffâ€™s deputies and WCSD Detective Jason Spencer obtained the suspectâ€™s phone number, (917)775-8486, which is based out of New York, and began to investigate.
