The Moreland Hills Police Department wants our residents to beware of current scams, as reported by Cuyahoga County Consumer Affairs.

  • Arrest And Jury Duty Scams
    Scammers pose as police and claim you are about to be arrested. Often they claim it is because you missed jury duty or because of a mix-up that will affect your Social Security. One jury duty arrest scam targets teachers in Cuyahoga County.  
  • Romance Scams
    Losses to romance scams hit $547 million in 2021, a 
    record high. These scams start as online flirtations but are designed to get people to send money or invest in bogus companies.
  • Utility Shutoff Scams
    Scammers posing as electric company employees are calling, texting, and even going door to door threatening Cuyahoga County residents with immediate utilities shutoffs if they do not pay. 

To report a scam or to get help with a complaint against a business, contact Consumer Affairs at 216-443-SCAM or online
