The Livingston County Sheriff’s Office says a number of area citizens have been receiving a new kind of scam call.

According to the information from Sheriff Steve Cox a number of Livingston County citizens have reported being contacted by someone claiming to be a member of law enforcement. That individual claims they have had to remove a loved one from an area nursing home.

Sheriff Cox says the number being used shows as a 660-240-XXXX number but when that number is called back a recording promptly directs the caller to “press “1” to leave a message or press “0” to speak with an operator”. Upon pressing “0” the call was transferred to the Law Enforcement Center dispatch office in Chillicothe.

The Sheriff says this is a scam that is utilizing local agency information in an attempt to swindle you out of your money. He suggests simply hanging up on the criminals.
