Man sends money to Lebanon in scam
A 48-year-old man told police Wednesday that he lost a thousand dollars in an apparent scam. He said he received a telephone call and the caller told him that he had received a $7,500 grant because he had good credit. All he needed to do to receive the grant, according to the caller, was send $968.99 to an address in Lebanon for transaction fees. The victim wired the money but never received his grant. He believes he has been defrauded.
