Fraud Alert

There have been two reported cases of cars being sold via Facebook marketplace.
Men are coming from Ohio and purchasing the vehicle using FRAUDULENT money
orders from United Dairy Farmers. Victims of this scam are not getting the names of the
suspects or confirming their identities during transactions. Fake accounts are common
and when tracked, we are not always able to confirm the identity of the persons running
the page. Victims of this scam have allowed suspects to come to their homes, not
knowing who they are, and this could be dangerous. We ask citizens to use caution when
buying or selling on Marketplace or any other on-line selling app.
If you have been a victim of a scam, please contact the Decatur County
Communications Center to report this. They can be reached on their non-emergency line
at 812-222-4911.
