From the issued press release:

July 24 we received a report of a phone scam as a group of people keep calling a Chillicothe resident multiple times a day from Kingston Jamaica. The callers have been attempting to swindle the surviving spouse into falling for a scam and becoming a victim. The citizen reports some of the callers have been verbally aggressive. Caller is obtaining a new and unlisted number and the information is being submitted to the proper authorities.

A different county resident reported that he has been contacted by multiple scammers attempting to swindle him out or money in selling an item on Craigslist. Typical scams that include wanting a 3rd party to pick up items and overpay via pay-pal and have the intended victim wire them the difference in money. Fortunately the intended victim was aware of scams but is frustrated at the large amount of communication he keeps receiving from multiple sources.

July 24 Victim reported having had computer account(s) hacked and personal accounts altered and identity theft. Suspect(s) have opened or attempted to open credit in one or more state(s) and successfully charged items. Investigation with fraud departments and sheriff in another state is continuing.

We have obtained more information on possible harassment from at least one person in Chillicothe allegedly frequently harassing the victim. Report being submitted to prosecuting attorney for consideration of charge(s).
