Warning! Scam!

Date: November 28, 2007

State police in Gettysburg say they are investigating a scam involving travelers checks.

Police said there have been several incidents in the area in which citizens have received $500 travelers checks in the mail or through UPS.

The checks are counterfeit.

American Express does not issue travelers checks in amounts greater than $100, police said. Police advise residents not to cash the checks because if they are cashed by the banking institution or other business, the individual who cashes the check is responsible for repaying the money to the bank of business.

Police believe the mailings are connected to an Internet contact with unknown parties through different types of solicitations.
