Scammers strike in Seneca
Meglan: One resident taken for $27,000
SENECA — Seneca police are warning area residents of two scams that have been reported recently to the department.
According to a department release, in one of the scams, a Seneca woman was told she won a new vehicle and $5 million, but in order to claim the winnings, she had to purchase loadable MoneyPak credit cards from Casey's General Store. The resident was called back and asked for the numbers on the back of the card to access the cash from the card.
Seneca police are working on a case where a resident lost about $27,000 through the scam, Chief Ray Meglan reported. According to the report, these types of scams are difficult for police to investigate because scammers rent out offices in short stints and also use Magic Jack phones, which are difficult to trace.
