Lima, OH (WIMA) - The Better Business Bureau has received information that residents in our area are receiving calls supposedly from Sheriff Deputies from the Allen County Sheriff Office.
The phone numbers that appear on caller ID are either a local 419 number or the actual Allen County Sheriff office phone number.
These are scam calls.
The calls vary in nature from collecting money for back taxes or unpaid court fines.
If you receive a call from a person claiming to be from the Allen County Sheriff office, notify the BBB at 419-223-7010.
