JACKSON COUNTY, OH (WOWK) – The Jackson County, Ohio, Sheriff’s Office is warning residents of a new mail scam.
According to the sheriff’s office, a resident of Wellston, Ohio reported receiving a postcard in the mail allegedly from “The State of Texas Criminal Court,” which said he owes fines and if they are not paid, a warrant would be issued and he would go to jail. The sheriff’s office says this is a scam and residents should not send the requested money.
The scam postcard reads that the court has reported the recipient to their home state for non-renewal of their driver’s license due to the supposed unpaid fines. The scammers also say the “warrants” will remain active until payment is received and posted.
