Police are warning people, if it seems too good to be true it probably is. This is after a woman is scammed out of more than $10,000.00.
Financial fraudsters are hitting Grand Junction again with fake foreign lottery and money order scams.
The lottery scam came in the form of a letter post marked from Spain. It asks people to give their bank account number so their winnings can be deposited.
The fake money order scam asks people to sign up as secret shoppers. Then bogus money orders are sent to them to purchase high priced electronics.
A local woman found out the hard way that the money orders were fake and now she owes her bank more than $10,000.00 for the worthless money orders.
Police hope by getting the word out more people won't fall victim to scams like these.
