The Merrill Police Department has reported A Merrill resident recently reported being the victim of a possible scam.
The resident received a post card in the mail instructing them to call for a free $100.00. The resident called the number and paid $1.99 to accept the offer. Personal account information was also requested at that time. Additionally, the resident reported receiving a follow up offer from another business and it is possibly related to the original fraudulent act.
The Merrill Police department reminds you; If it sounds too good to be true, it is probably a scam and NEVER give out personal account information to an unverified source.
