The Chillicothe Police Department warns that during these uncertain times don’t let yourself be fooled by unsolicited emails or posts directed over social media that are asking for financial assistance or where it sounds as though you might gain financially by providing personal or financial information. There are any number of cyber criminals out there on the phone or internet that are trying to profit from the world health situation at this time. Use common sense and don’t fall prey to their persuasive tactics!!!
