Officials in Wood County are reporting a new approach to scamming. One county resident says they received a letter that appeared to be from Chase Bank saying more information was needed – including a Social Security number – to complete a credit application. The skeptical recipient checked the phone number and return address and found out the letter was a fake. The Wood County Sheriff’s Office posted a copy of the letter online and reminded residents to watch out for unsolicited requests for their Social Security number or other sensitive personal data.
