CLINTON COUNTY- In a lengthy post on facebook, the Clinton County sheriff describes how a resident fell prey to a medicare scam.

In the post the sheriff says Medicare and other consumer protection agencies sounded the alarm about a DNA kit scam about six months ago, reporting some face to face solicitations at senior centers, and telemarketing aimed at seniors.
