Watch out for scams

Posted by wlpo on March 4, 2010

If someone you don’t know sends you a check and asks you to cash it and then send the money to someone else, don’t.  That’s the advice from the Illinois State Police after someone had a phony check and papers arrive by Fed-Ex.

          They say it was a scam.  The letter claims the money is for a social worker in Alabama that works with runaways and orphans.

          The police say the check looked real, but it wasn’t.  If you think something is too good to be true, it probably is.
