SUMMARY:

April 2, 2014

In short, scams are designed to gain trust and they prey upon this trust, taking advantage of community members. The Manhattan and Riley County area is fortunate that these cases are not at an epidemic level, however every once in a while the Riley County Police Department is made aware of a potential scam or two. Some of these scams have even created loss or identity theft and can often times be tough for law enforcement to solve.

I was truly impressed by the things I learned and observed first hand. The following serves as a debrief of my experience and is supplemented with a video showing pieces of my training with them.
