Rangely Police Dept. warns of check scam

RANGELY — The Rangely Police Department is advising all town and county residents to be alert for possible check scams. It has come to the attention of the police department that there may be fraudulent checks being sent to our residents. These checks will come from businesses from other countries to include Nigeria and Canada. Do not attempt to cash or deposit these checks. Most scams will require the “winner” to cash the check and send some of the money back as a money order for taxes. If you think you may have received a scam check, please bring it with any other accompanying letters to the police department.
