Scam Costs Salina Man

KSAL Staff - June 13, 2016 11:52 am

A Salina man was scammed for over $1,800, after multiple phone calls convinced him he was a grant recipient.

Captain Mike Sweeney tells KSAL News that the man contacted police after sending $1,893 in three transactions to a caller who claimed to be with the National Institute of Health Department.

On Friday the scammer told the man who lives in east Salina, he had qualified for a grant of $14,566 and would receive the money if he sent a money gram of $361 to an address in China.

Three money grams later, the victim contacted police.
