Beware of online marketplaces

A 21-year-old Monroe woman was scammed out of $800 when she tried to buy a new camera for her business on Facebook Marketplace, according to a complaint made Thursday.

Police said she sent the money in installments via a cash app and Apple Pay and once the payments were made, communication with the seller ceased.

“Do not send money via cash apps to someone you don’t know,” Lt. Kevin McKellick said.

When making online purchases on Facebook Marketplace and other social media platforms, to avoid being scammed, police have a designated spot on the north side of their building at 7 Fan Hill Road with a security camera, where citizens can meet to safely complete their transactions.

On June 10, she turned herself in on a Monroe police warrant charging her with failure to report the loss or theft of a firearm. She was released on $1,000 bond for a June 17 court date.
