MEDFORD – Following a scam that was reported on Monday, the Grant County Sheriff’s Office has reported a second scam. The first scam can be seen here.
The second scam reported involves a “company” sending a letter saying that the recipient has been awarded a large sum of money and they send the same recipient a check for a smaller amount to cover “processing fees.”
The scammer is hoping the victim deposits the check, withdraw, and send the money back to the scammer before the check bounces.
There are several scams similar to this. Please do not cash any checks you receive from an unknown source. This applies not only to Grant County residents, but everyone.
