COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio's attorney general has warned members of the U.S. military and their families to be alert to consumer scams including some specifically targeting military personnel.
Attorney General Mike DeWine says some of the military-specific scams include targeting grandparents of military personnel. The scammers claim the consumer's grandchild in the military has been arrested and detained overseas and the grandparents must wire money.
Other scams involve family members of deployed service members being asked to send money so the service members can go on early leave.
DeWine encourages active-duty military members and their families to report any consumer complaints to his office. DeWine says his office offers a fast-track complaint process and some free legal services to military personnel.
