BEWARE OF INTERNET SCAM: On 4/2/2013 at 12:06 pm, Trooper Barlow took a fraud report which is related to an ongoing scam. Online job ads are posted for "Administrative Assistant," "Work from home shopping," and others. (In this case, the ad was on WashingtonPost.com) Once you apply for the "job" and are hired, you are set up with an online contact who then sends you checks to cash through your bank. You are asked to wire money to various locations under the pretense of completing administrative tasks for your new employers. You are also allowed to keep a small amount as a "hiring bonus." The checks are later found to be fake. No matter the variation of the scam, most usually deal with fake checks. Please use caution dealing with any checks, money orders, etc. that are mailed to you or are acquired through any type of internet contacts.
