Rush police warn of phone scam
Rush Township police have received several calls in reference to a scam falsely involving Proctor and Gamble Corp. The scam involves a person calling and stating that the victims have won a large sum of money (usually $2.2 million).
The caller requests that the person wire money (usually $695) to process the check. They give a number which comes back to Jamaica. When contacted by police, Proctor and Gamble Corp. officials stated that they absolutely do not offer such a contest.
Township police remind residents not to give out any of their information over the phone such as their bank account information, Social Security number or credit card numbers.
