Editorial: Don't fall prey to scammers
Scammers are using every way imaginable to try to take your money, whether it's by phone, email, delivered mail or in person. What may seem to be a legitimate offer at first glance could cost you a lot of money.
Warren County Sheriff Daniel McEathron's words of warning in a news story this week about a mysterious mailing sent to some area residents make sense: "Our rule of thumb is, if you don't make hand-to-hand or eye-to-eye contact, then stay away from them."
But even if you do make personal contact with someone offering you his services, beware.
