“These ads are often a nice residence, at a great price and it almost seems to good to be true, and unfortunately it is,” Lt. Budreau says.
He says they’ve received 10 reports of this scam, but thankfully no one wired any money. He warns people to be cautious of internet ads that don’t involve face to face interaction, and says it’s unlikely the suspects in this case will get caught as many scammers are out of the area and maybe even out of the country.
