Local Woman Loses Phone, $1000 In Facebook Scam

A FDL-area woman is out a phone and $1000 after a weekend online sale goes south. A 53-year old female told FDL County Sheriff’s Deputies she had sold a blue iPhone 12 Pro for $1000 via Facebook Marketplace to a man in a black BMW. The man paid for it in cash, using $20’s and $100’s, which turned out to be fake. The suspect was a 24-year old male, but the license plate that was on the vehicle turned up nothing in the county system. Anyone with any information is asked to contact the FDL County Sheriff’s Office.
