Police in the Meadville area say several residents have recently been approached by someone claiming he can help them with their finances if they help obtain some funding themselves.
The scammer claims that the procedure would involve the Salvation Army.
Police say Meadville-area residents have been approached with this scheme at their homes, in their cars and on the sidewalks. Investigators say they have a good description of one suspect who may have been involved in five or more such incidents just last week.
Information should be forwarded to the Meadville City Police. Officials at the Meadville office of the Salvation Army say they would also forward information to the proper authorities.
