Before sending money, do any of these sound familiar?
- Are you sending money to claim a lottery prize
- Are you sending money to help someone get a large sum of money out of their country?
- Are you sending money because a relative called from another state or country and told you that they need help?
- Are you sending money because you were “guaranteed” a credit card or loan?
- Are you sending money to someone you have not met personally?
- Are you sending money to someone you’ve never met to pay for their trip to America?
These are just some examples of scams being perpetrated using money transfers. If any of these sound like your situation, please call the Greenfield Police Department for assistance and advice.
