Man avoids scam

A Munson Township man avoided being the latest victim of a scam last week.

The Geauga County Sheriff’s Office said a Sherman Road resident reported Oct. 23 that he received an email stating his Microsoft account was frozen. When he called the number, he was advised to send a check.

Although the man wrote out a check, he did not send it. Instead, he called Microsoft to confirm that his account was not frozen.

He then reported the incident to police.

Fliers in and then out

Getting the word out for one Munson Township political candidate proved challenging last week.

The candidate was unable to provide a license plate for the trailing vehicle, but could only describe it as a black SUV.
