The Findlay Police Department is warning area residents about a scam by people who are collecting donations.
On its Facebook page, the Police Department said people, who said they were athletes from Elmwood High School in Wood County, were collecting funds for a dying teacher at that school.
Police said there is no such teacher at Elmwood.
“We believe that there may be numerous victims in and around northwestern Ohio,” police said.
“If you were a victim of this scam, please contact your local law enforcement agency with any information that might assist in getting this activity stopped,” police said.
