Local prosecutors are warning people to be wary of an old scam with a twist.
Some scammers contacted a local woman asking her to her to participate in a mystery shopper program. The request came with a $2800 Bank of America cashier’s check. She was instructed to cash the check, keep $200,000 then wire $2600 to a certain location. Granted the check was a fake. Fortunately the woman recognized it as a scam and contacted the state attorney’s office.
If you suspect you may be the target of a scam, immediately contact your nearest police department.
