The Warren County Sheriff's Office is warning citizens about a scam targeting elderly residents.
On Feb. 28, an elderly man contacted the sheriff's office and said he had received a call from a man claiming to be from the Warren County Probate Court. The caller told the man he wanted to help him with his finances.
The elderly resident contacted the Warren County Sheriff's Office. A short time later, a middle-aged, white man with short salt-and-pepper hair showed up at the elderly man's home. The man was driving a white Cadillac.
Anyone who receives a call or visit from someone who identifies himself as a representative of the Warren County Probate Court should contact local law enforcement. If anyone has information about this suspect, contact the sheriff's office at 513 695-1280.
