That seems like a common sense plea to the public, but according to Lt. Rich Whitford, residents are being duped by persistent and convincing con artists.
He said that recently a Fort Thomas resident had been conned to the tune of $6,000, the first one that's occurred in Fort Thomas.
"There's a regional scam happening in the area that is targeting the elderly. Scammers are posing as law enforcement agencies and the callers tell the victims that there is a warrant for their arrest," said Whitford. "We will never do that. Law enforcement agencies never do that."
