“The caller stated that they had received a health related complaint against the business,” Ciocco said. “The caller went on to state they would be sending an inspector to the business and they could expect to pay a fine of $2,000.“
Detective Lt. Jack Oppelt got hold of a local Board of Health official who said there wasn’t an open case against the restaurant and that “similar scams had taken place throughout the state.”
If you get one of these calls, call your local police department immediately. Official identification, Ciocco said, “can be verified.”
