Fraud

On 11/10/2016, a resident in Chambersburg reported that she received a check in the mail for $1750.00.  She informed police that the items that she sold were for $304.  The email she received along with the check informed her to cash the check and send the remaining balance via Western Union to the original sender.  With all the information provided to the police, it was determined that this was a scam in order to gain access to the resident's bank account. 

The Chambersburg Police wants to remind citizens to watch out for suspicious activity.  The following link is to the Federal Trade Commission website with helpful information.
