Darke Co. sheriff warns of bogus survey

GREENVILLE, Ohio (WDTN) – The Darke County Sheriff’s Office is warning residents about a woman posing as a health department official.

Deputies say she is knocking on doors, asking people to take a survey.  They say she is wearing a name tag and identifies herself as working for the Department of Health.

Witnesses say she was driving an early 1990s black Buick Regal.  They did not get a good physical description.

The sheriff’s office says both the Darke County Health Department and the State of Ohio Department of Health confirm that neither is conducting surveys in the area.

Deputies say never be afraid to ask someone for proper identification.  The Department of Health for example, has a logo on it and a photo of the employee.

Call 911 to report any suspicious activity.
