SPENCERVILLE — Spencerville Police Chief Darin Cook reported the department handled two separate email and/or phone scams in July during the Village Council meeting Monday night.

Cook said the first scam was a man asking for money for Publisher’s Clearinghouse over the phone. He said the money would be used to pay fees associated with the winnings and then the check would be mailed to the winner.

The university says it had to move swiftly on a complaint against Waters under federal sexual discrimination laws.
