RUSH TOWNSHIP – The Philipsburg-based state police would like to warn the public of a telephone scam.
According to the report, an Osceola Mills woman has been receiving scam telephone calls at her place of business. She’s been asked to send money and her social security number, so that a group can assist her with legal issues. The woman doesn’t have any legal issues.
