Online Relationship Leads to Scam

KSAL StaffMarch 20, 2014

A Salina man falls victim to a scam.

Salina Police report a 53-year-old man met a woman online who convinced him she needed help with paying her bills.

The woman allegedly sent him a check for $4,400 with instructions to cash it. He was then asked to wire it to a man in Florida who would then pay her bills.

The victim cashed it at his bank on March 13th and used Western Union and MoneyGram to wire the funds out of state.

Police say his bank contacted him to inform him the check was not valid and he now owes them $4,400.
