Town Of Beloit Advising Of Amazon Scam
The Town of Beloit Police Department is asking the public to be mindful of the scam. The department says a scammer who is claiming to be with Amazon Fraud Prevention contacted an individual by text message. The department says that the scammer arranges to have a reversible deposit put into the victim's bank account. They then say that it was an overpayment and the overages will have to be paid back. The scammer tells the victim to go to a store and purchase amazon gift cards or other retailers, and to take a photograph and send it to the caller. In turn, the caller would redeem the gift cards, reverse the “overages”, and remove the money from the victims account. For more information, visit the Town of Beloit Police on Facebook.
