POINSETT COUNTY, AR (KAIT) - A local sheriff says if you receive a check with instructions from a couple of big box stores, it's probably a scam.
Poinsett County Sheriff Kevin Molder stated on his office's Facebook page about an incident Friday.
A victim of the scam contacted the sheriff's office when a "USbank Cashiers Check" was sent to them in the amount of $2,850.95. Also, instructions were sent to participate in a Customer Service Shop and Report at Walmart and possibly Target stores.
Molder stated this is a scam and is no way affiliated with the stores or any other legitimate company.
The sheriff added that if you receive such a check with such instructions to contact the Poinsett County Sheriff's Office immediately.
