How many times have we heard the statement, "If it's too good to be true, it probably is"? Yet, there are many scam artists out there who continue to have success, despite warnings from law enforcement officials.
The latest of those warnings came from Vandalia Police Chief Jeff Ray on Tuesday, who warned residents of a telephone scam.
Through that scam, the caller tells the person that he or she has won a prize. That caller then asks the person to either provide personal information or to send money to cover taxes or for some other expense.
