A woman from Southgate, Michigan contacted Salina Police after she was allegedly scammed on Craig’s List. Denise Balogh told officers she tried to buy a car online in early July. The seller asked her to send $1,600 via Western Union. Police say the transaction was picked up at the Salina Wal-Mart on South Broadway. The woman suspected she was the victim of a scam after the seller called her back and asked for an additional $1,000 for, “insurance purposes.”
