The Ohio Attorney General's Office is warning of a phone scam offering federal grants.

 

The office states they have received dozen of reports on the scam. It begins with a phone call or Facebook message claiming the person was selected for being a "good citizen, paying taxes or not having a criminal record."

 

The potential victim has to pay a few hundred dollars to cover processing fees or taxes to receive the grant.

 

The best advice as always is to remember if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
