The Wood County Sheriff's Department is warning residents of a scam targeting patients at Riverview Hospital.

According to the department, the scammer tells the caller they need a debit or credit card number to submit payment for an outstanding balance at the hospital.

The sheriff department says if you are on the receiving end of one of these calls do not provide any information to the caller, no matter how legitimate it may seem. They urge you to simply hang up the phone.
