Salina Man Victim to Scam

KSAL Staff - September 14, 2015 10:56 am

Another Salina man falls victim to a scam.

A 35-year-old male sent payments to a man claiming to be an attorney representing Cash Advance and said that victim owed $1500.

The victim wired $125 per month starting in June 2015 via Moneygram, for a total loss of $375. The 35-year-old said he did owe $370 to Advance America, which is where he got confused.

After paying the $375 and the “attorney” said he owed more money, the victim grew suspicious and alerted police authorities.

If he had the $375 why did he not just take it to their store and pay it in person? He had to go buy a money order to send to the guy so whether he went to purchase that or simply drove to the company outlet would have made no difference. People like this make it easy for scammers.
