If you receive a letter that offers you money and it sounds too good to be true..it probably is. The Muskingum County Sheriff’s Office is investigating several complaints from citizens who have received a letter this past week. The letter says that you can collect sums of money by contacting someone in Nigeria. Sheriff Stephenson says this is an old scam where the recipient of the letter is asked to send more to the Nigerian Connection to receive money, however there is no money. He asks anyone who received a letter to contact the Sheriff’s Office immediately.
