If you like to help people, this one is for you! Be aware there is a woman going by the name of Naomi Scott saying she is moving from New York to Manhattan while pregnant and needs help getting appliances. She sends a cashiers check to you for several thousand dollars — saying you can keep $200 for your efforts, but you have to send the rest back in a Western Union.

It takes a couple of days but the check bounces — leaving you out of thousands.

Do Not Fall For It!

Dear Community Members,

I am a recent addition to your community police department. I arrived here with 38 years of police experience in departments ranging in size from 26-340 officers, serving populations of 12,800-140,000 in very urban areas to mostly rural ones. I am not an expert in anything, but have a lot of various experiences from those places.
