Malden Police Chief warns of money order scam

MALDEN, MO (KFVS) - The Malden police chief says he has received a lot of reports of a money order scam.

Chief Jarrett Bullock says people are getting these money orders in the mail that appear to be legitimate, but they are not.

Bullocks says the fake money orders are originating out of Brooklyn, then some go overseas making them hard to trace.

Chief Bullock says if you are not expecting a money order and you get it, to tear it up and throw it in the trash.
