More Scams Hit Area

posted by John Baibak - 

Springfield Police are alerting residents of a new scam.  

Police say the scam centers on Craigslist and EBay.  

The scammers offer a car for sale at a very low cost.  

They claim that they need to sell the car because they are being deployed and they need fast cash.  

They request that you pay with a prepaid card and that's the scam.  

Springfield Police say the name being used is Jennifer Norris.  That name could change. 

If you get a call with a similar name or the deal sounds too good to be true, hang up and call police and never give anyone any personal information.  

Police say if someone wants payment with a prepaid card it is always a scam.
