Another fraud scam in Humboldt County
EUREKA - The Eureka Police Department is warning the public of yet another scam.
It is in the form of an email from a local church and uses one of the administrator’s names. The letter explains falsely that the administrator is in the Ukraine and trying to help a cousin with kidney problems and needs $2,800 to help get them back to the US. The scam continues with saying their credit card won’t work and to please send money.
Law enforcement cautions the public to never fall for these types of fraud. Always call your local police if you have any questions regarding any suspicious email.
