SPRINGBORO, Ohio - An elderly Springboro woman was the victim of a scam after a man allegedly posed as an employee from the Warren County Elderly Services Program.
Police say a Hispanic/Caucasian man about 5 feet 7 inches tall with a medium build, dark hair and bushy eyebrows, came to the woman's residence on Jan. 28 and offered to discuss Medicare.
The suspect started to acquire the victim's information when the woman's daughter called and asked to speak with the alleged WCESP employee. The man was reportedly spooked after the phone conversation and promptly left in a gray SUV.
Officials say the subject provided the elderly woman with an actual business card of a WCESP employee and was dressed professionally.
Police say when the daughter called WCESP to verify the appointment, but was told they do not make house calls and they do not have any male workers.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (513) 352-3040.
