Danville Police warns of Scams

The Danville Police Dept. is warning residents of scams.  If you have to pay money to make money, it’s a scam. Several Danville residents have lost thousands of dollars recently, after believing a caller who told them they won several million dollars, but need to pay the tax before it can be claimed. These individuals are instructed to send thousands of dollars via Western Union to individuals out of the country, but then receive nothing in return. Unfortunately it is nearly impossible to track down the money in these off shore accounts, so the victim is left with an empty bank account, and nothing to show for it. Should you be contacted by a scammer your asked to contact your local law enforcement.
