Franklin City Police are warning us of the latest scam to be circulating around this part of the Oil Region.

The ploy revolves around the mailings of what appear to be winning checks from a sweepstakes contest.  The enclosed checks are phony.

Police say the mailings come from a company calling itself, “Novacapital Financial Services.”  Investigators urge residents to report any mailings or phone calls from the company, and we are again warned not to disclose personal information, such as bank and social security numbers’ under any questionable circumstances.
