On June 17 our office began investigating a report of fraud where a rural resident was scammed out of $1,550 dollars. The scammer somehow convinced our citizen they had won a large sum of money from a foreign country and needed to wire them money to get the process started. The criminals requested an additional $5,000 be wired to them and unsuccessful attempts were made to complete this transaction. Fortunately the scammers did not receive additional money from this victim.
The best practice if you receive these emails, postal delivery, or even telephone calls is to ignore it. These people will continue harassing you until they get the last possible dime from you and will never deliver any money, goods, or show up to pickup a purchase.
