As part of an ongoing central Ohio scam, a clerk at a business on the 7000 block of North High Street called police after someone posed as a manager, telling the employee to refund money to a customer on the morning of Nov. 25.

According to Sgt. Michael Holton with the Worthington Division of Police, area agencies have reported the scam throughout the area and are working together to find those responsible. Holton said this case was the second in Worthington and one of many in central Ohio.

In this case, the transaction yielded less than $200, but others -- usually at hotels, restaurants or small retailers -- have been more lucrative.

Generally, the profile of the crime is that someone calls the employee on duty pretending to be either a manager or someone from the company's corporate office and tells them someone will be arriving to collect a refund.

Worthington detectives, along with other agencies, are investigating the reports.
