Some recent fraud activity has been taking place and area police are warning residents. Egg Harbor Township Police are warning that residents have signed up on-line to be secret shoppers and received packets in the mail with directions, and what appear to be money orders or checks. The directions were to deposit/cash the check and wire a portion of the check to an address outside of the United States. One of the subjects who received this information realized it was a scam right away and made the police department aware of it. Another was not found out until the checks were deposited in their bank account.
Police are asking residents to be extra careful of any suspicious activity.
