Scam Week: Craigslist Concerns

 It looked like the real deal..it looked so legit..a veteran from Washingon State had to sell his pick-up truck --very quickly because he was being deployed overseas and he could not be reached on the phone..only over the internet.

One family sent two thousand dollars to the person-they said it all looked legit.  There was no secure e-bay account to send the money to, no pick up truck and it was a fake site.  The family didn't realize it until the money was gone.

Detectives say a red flag is not being able to talk to a person about what you are buying and add if a deal sounds too good to be true it probably is.

 Scam Week continues all week at 11 on WYOU and after the Olympics on WBRE.
