JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Jonesboro police were called to an apartment on Thursday on a suspected case of fraud.
According to an incident report, the victim said he received a message from someone he thought was a friend.
The message said that there was a government grant that he could get, but he needed to send money to qualify.
The victim sent the suspect a picture of a $100 iTunes gift card.
He later felt uneasy about the transaction and worried it might be a hoax.
He looked up the phone number online from the messenger and figured out it was a scam.
