Two Targeted In Salina Scams

KSAL StaffFebruary 22, 2016

Salina Police are investigating a couple of unrelated scams.

Police say that a 54-year-old male was bilked out of nearly $3,000 after meeting someone named “Diana Shannon”, from Nigeria, via Facebook. The victim was convinced to wire two moneygrams to Shannon, one in the amount of $1,060, the other in the amount of $1,989. The victim thought that he was sending the money to help his new friend pay for “food and other items.” The Facebook profile turned out to be a fake account from a person using a fake name.

In an unrelated scam, a 56-year-old female was bilked out of over $3,000. The victim thought that she was receiving grant money for home repairs via a program called “Cenex Hydra.” Using two credit cards, she submitted two “processing fees” totaling $3,100. After submitting the money, she became suspicious and contacted police. Police determined that there was no “Cenex Hydra” grant program.
