The Iona County Sheriff’s Office website is warning area residents of scams inundating the Ionia area, with scam calls regarding several issues involving registration and licensing.
If anyone saying they are a government agency requires payment in iTunes, Moneygram, Western Union or prepaid credit cards, they are not a real government representative, the post says.
The government generally corresponds in these matters via the mail and other forms of contact (i.e. in person).
The sheriff’s office advises reporting any suspicious calls to local law enforcement and not to obtain any suspicious forms of payment until after talking to local law enforcement.
