Township residents should be aware of a recently reported scam in the Middletown area. The scam targeted a victim who was displaced by the flooding from Tropical Storm Lee and was looking for a new home to rent.
An ad was found on Craig’s List and victim inquired about the homes availability, where they were requested to wire money overseas as part of the deal. Fortunately the victim realized this was a potential scam and contacted Police.
Swatara Township Police ask that residents be vigilant and use common sense when answering any ad on sites such as Craigslist and report any suspicious activity to the department immediately at (717) 558-6900.
