Alert: 9-5-2018 (2)

The Crafton Police Department took a scam report today. The resident stated that he posted an ad on Craig’s List and has spoken with someone interested in buying his item. The purchaser stated that they will send a cashier’s check to him after they receive his information (name and address) and that he is to deposit the money into his bank account. After the deposit is made, the resident is supposed to mail a check to the purchaser so that his shipper can pick up the item. No information was provided to the interested purchaser and the resident is not out of any money.
If you are selling something on the internet it is probably in your best interest to make the exchange in person. If in doubt contact the police department for guidance and assistance.
Remember if it seems too good to be true, It probably is.
