MADEIRA, OH (FOX19) - It is one of the oldest scams in the book, and Madeira residents need to be on high alert. Reports of a magazine subscription scam are circling the East side neighborhood.
Several calls have come into the Madeira Police Department of people buying magazines and then finding out it is a scam. A group of young people between ages 18-20 are said to be involved. They claim that half the money is going towards college books and the other half is being sent to the troops. These scam artists have a clever hook to their stories.
