TODD COUNTY -- The Todd County Sheriff's Department is warning you of a phone scam circling the area.

On December 11th, deputies say that Lilian Ortendahl, of Osakis, received phone calls saying that a company had a prepaid medical alert system ready for her and wanted to know where to deliver it.
