Police: Buyer Beware
KSAL Staff - March 8, 2017 11:09 am
Salina Police are urging citizens to be careful when purchasing high-tech items over the internet.
Police Sergeant Jim Feldman tells KSAL News that a man from Navarre traveled to Salina last week to purchase an iPhone he found on a buy, sell, trade page on Facebook.
A short time after he had paid the seller $150 in cash he realized he could not activate the iPhone 6 because he was not given the access code.
Police say no crime was committed unless the seller was trying to keep the access code information away from the 34-year-old victim.
