North Judson Police Investigate Scam

The North Judson Police Department recently investigated another scam going around the area.

Police say a resident on Lincoln Avenue received what appeared to be a legitimate check in the mail for around $3,800 from a nationally-known insurance company. The person was asked to deposit the check and wire $1,900 back to the company to receive the remainder of the money. This is a scam. If you deposit the check and wire the money, the check will bounce and your money will already be claimed by the scammer.

North Judson Town Marshal Doug Vessely reminds you that you never have to send money to claim a prize or finalize a business deal. He says that you should not wire anyone or any company cash if you are not sure of who you are dealing with. If you receive any notices like this, call your local law enforcement agency.
