Gift Card Scam
The Anniston Police Department wants to warn the community about a possible scam in the area. Customers have been seen in local retail establishments buying visa gift cards, google play cards, and other blank cards; loading money on them and sending to other countries. Customers are known to send these blank cards to other countries with high hopes of receiving a larger payout.
The Anniston Police wants to inform everyone that this scam has been going on for several years. The Oxford Police Department has also received numerous complaints about an insurance scams. If someone is trying to contact you with asking you to buy a green dot card to put money on, or about insurance, simply ignore it or call your local police department.
