The City of Sequim Police Department Warns of a New Scam

The Sequim Police Department is warning the public of a new mail scam that has been reported.

A local resident received a package in the mail containing a check for $1988.00 from Henry Dixon through Hometown National Bank. The package included elaborate instructions on how to deposit the check and purchase iTunes gift cards from national retailers for the purpose of a survey. The recipient is then instructed to “scratch” the cards and send pictures of the scratch page of the cards and the receipts to a specific email or text number.

This is a scam. If you receive an unsolicited package in the mail containing a check that you are not expecting, do not cash the check. Checks may appear legitimate and some banks may allow them to be deposited, but the checks will later return with insufficient funds. In these cases, the person who deposited the check will likely lose any money spent from the account. Notify the Sequim Police Department at (360) 683-7227 if you have received a package that you suspect is part of a scam.
