Scam Alerts

Police took two reports of attempted scams on March 26 and 27, 2020.

Scam one involved a resident that was attempting to sell a dirt bike on Craigs List. Persons contacted the seller and sent a check VIA UPS for an amount well above the asking price for the bike.

The seller was advised to cash the check and use the extra funds to pay for shipping costs of the bike.

Investigation found that the check is a counterfeit and the seller is not out any money in this case.

The second scam involved a resident whom received a check in the mail from “BlueCross BlueShield of Montana” for a substantial amount along with a letter advising the resident they had won a large amount of cash though a lottery and this check was to cover the taxes.

The resident contacted police and is not out any money in this case.

Residents are again advised to be vigilant and not fall victim to these scams. If it seems to good to be true, it probably is.
