A 47-year-old Dobbs Ferry man fell victim to a Craigslist scam between Nov. 4 and Nov. 8. The Dobbs Ferry resident responded to a job application looking for an individual to run errands for a person from Louisiana who was out of the country.
The Dobbs Ferry man was asked to cash a postal money order he received in the mail and deposit it into his bank account. Once he made the deposit for $975 he was told to keep $318 as payment and send the rest to a man in the Philippines.
After the money was sent, the bank advised him that the money order was fraudulent leaving the Dobbs Ferry to foot the $657 bill. This case is under investigation.
