Local FDL Woman Out Almost $19,000

FDL Police are again warning residents of online scams, after
a local woman finds herself out a stash of cash. Police responded to a call just
before noon on Thursday(December 2, 2020) to Berger Parkway where a resident there told of
meeting a male stranger online, and subsequently sending him a check for almost
$19,000. When asked why, the female told police she was trying to help the
suspect, who told her he lives in Dubai,
get his jewelry case of gold and diamonds back. She informed police she never
met the man, except online via Skype, and that she wasn’t expecting anything
other than for the man to pay her back. Police continue to investigate, and as
of right now, it appears the woman is out $18,900.
