Local Scam Alert

Dubois County (NNDC):

A Jasper business is warning fellow businesses to beware following an attempt tied to a world-wide scam.

This particular scam has been targeting local businesses off and on for the past few years.

The local company says a man named Shawn (likely not his real name) from Los Angles attempted to purchase a large amount of goods and have them delivered to Hawaii.

The issue is he wanted to pay with a credit card believed to be stolen.

The scammer then says he has a preferred shipper and that the local business is to pay the freight and they will be reimbursed.  The reimbursement never happens and the local business is left holding the bag.
