East Liverpool Police for 3-5

Mark J. Hartenbach, Avondale Street, reported being victim of a possible scam, telling police he had placed an online order to Canada for medicine, and then being contacted by a Hispanic-sounding man claiming to be from the DEA. The man told Hartenbach he would be in trouble unless he sent another $800 to him in the Dominican Republic. Unsettled by the man, Hartenbach gave the man his banking information, according to police, who advised him to cancel his bank account.
