This appeared in the Harvard Police report this week:
FRAUD – INTERNET SCAM
On 10-07-15 at 1501 hrs, a Harvard Resident (f-37 yoa) reported they received a message about winning a large amount of money.
The resident sent $250 via a wire transfer to Nigeria as well as personal identifiers to claim the winnings.
The resident later learned it was a scam.
Residents are advised to be leery regarding these messages and verify information before sending money and personal information.
