Fayetteville Police Warn About E-Mail Scams

The Fayetteville Police Department has received information about an e-mail that is being circulated. The e-mail states that the recipient of the e-mail will be killed if money is not paid. This e-mail is similar to an e-mail scam identified by the FBI as the “Nigerian Letter”.

The Fayetteville Police Department would like to remind citizens that if they receive suspicious e-mails, do not open them as they could be a virus, do not forward them to others, check the Internet to see if it a scam, one of the places you can check is the FBI website (be crime smart) at fbi.gov/becrimesmart.
