SHAKER HEIGHTS, Ohio (WOIO) - Shaker Heights residents are being warned by the Ohio Department of Agriculture against a potentially fraudulent auction flyer being mailed out.

The DOA is issuing a consumer protection alert against a direct mailing advertisement marked as an urgent auction.

Auction items include rare collectibles, signed artwork and jewelry, officials say.

The ODA warns against any advertisement that declares a sense of urgency, claims to have rare and valuable items and fails to include the auction company’s name or contact information.
