Lincoln man conned out of $1,280 in Craigslist scam
A 19-year-old Lincoln man was scammed out of more than $1,000 after attempting to sell his vehicle to a man in Texas.
Lincoln Police said the 19-year-old victim placed his vehicle for sale on Craigslist for $700. Shortly after, he received a check from a man claiming he was from Katy, Texas.
The suspect sent the victim a check for $1,980.50 and asked the victim to send a check back for the overpayment. The victim obliged, but soon learned the check sent by the suspect was fraudulent.
Police are still investigating the incident.
