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!
Take precautions to make sure you don’t fall victim to a scam like this.
*Do try to do transactions in person if possible
*Do wait until checks process before doing any transactions
*Do safeguard your personal information
*Do call police if you are suspicious and want us to check it out
*DON’T send money without verifying the person receiving it is legitimate.
