Only On 11: TPD warns about con-artist targeting victims online

TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) - The Toledo Police Department wants you to know about a con-artist they believe is at it again. What they say he did and how you may be targeted only on WTOL 11.

We first told you about David Klotz and the Facebook page dedicated to stopping him Tuesday. Since then TPD have received several phone calls from women stating they were contacted by Klotz or one of his many aliases. Each victim giving a different story.

Toledo Police Sergeant Mike McGee was one of the officers responsible for finding and charging Klotz after he stole thousands of dollars from a Toledo minister. He says Klotz was never locked up for the crime but did receive probation.

Now police believe he is at it again, using the internet to target his next victim.

Sgt. McGee says he's concerned as to what length Klotz will go to scam his victims out of their money.

“I have women claiming that he has grabbed them. I have reports stating he was in procession of a hand gun. So, yes I'd have to say, in my opinion, he is dangerous,” said Sgt. McGee.

Right now police say there are no open warrants for Klotz's arrest. If you have been a victim of Klotz you can call Sgt. McGee at 419-936-3430.
