Police are warning residents about a shopping scam targeting residents in Palos Park, IL.
Residents are likely to receive a letter with a check, instructing them to deposit it, then wire some of the money back to the company, keep some of the money as payment and use the rest to shop, according to Palos Park police.
Though the checks may appear legitimate, they later bounce. The person who received the check is then left responsible for the money wired, police stated.
Anyone with information about this scam is asked to call the Palos Park police or contact the U.S. Postal Service!
