Email and phone call reported: A Macedonia man reported July 2 that he received an email from a recruiting firm offering him a job with a company. The man said he provided some requested information, but thought it suspicious. The man’s mother then reported she received a phone call from someone claiming to be an Army reserves recruiter in Toledo, where her son goes to college, and he was trying to reach her son. The woman said she did not provide any information. She then contacted a Toledo Army recruiting office and the company mentioned in the email and was told the call and email were scams.

Police said the information provided by her son in response to the email was not as sensitive as banking information and a Social Security number would be, but they advised that the mother and son monitor their financial information and contact police in Toledo and the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center.
