Be Aware – Per the Federal Trade Commission:
Scammers are looking for people to help them move stolen money. They visit on line dating, job search and soical media sites, create fake stories, and make up reasons to send you money, usually by check or Bitcoin. Then they tell you to send that money to someone else by using gift cards or wire transfers.  If you become a part of this scheme you can lose your own money(should you deposit the illegal check) or you can be criminally charged.

How can you avoid a money mule scam?

  •  Don’t forward money for an online romantic interest who sends you money. That’s always a scam, and a way to get you to move stolen money.
  • Don’t accept a job that asks you to transfer money or packages - even if they tell you to send money to a “client” or “supplier.” You may be helping a scammer move stolen money or gift cards.
  • Don’t accept a grant or prize award and forward some of the money. That’s another way to get you to move stolen money.
It has been an honor and pleasure to serve Northfield Twp for the past 25 years.  I will be retiring the end of December.  Myself and the entire Northfield Twp Police wish all a very Happy, Peaceful Holiday Season.
