Sheriff Lambert warns “beware of scams”

By Jeff Lambert, Sheriff
In our modern fast paced life some of us have grown accustomed to using the internet for an easy and convenient, and a lot of the time profitable, way of disposing of our goods of all kinds. You can place an item for sale and not only attract your local market, but also have your goods seen by millions of possible buyers. This can be a good thing, but it can also be a curse.
Be careful. The person you are talking with on the other end may not want only what you are selling; they may also want your bank account information.
