Bay Police: Good ‘Neighbor’ Hoaxed for $30

A ‘Good Neighbor’ hoax surfaced in Bay Village on April 11 at 1137 hours when a Juneway resident reported that on April 9, a male came to his house and claimed he had just purchased the home across the street.

The visitor claimed he needed $22.00 to have his vehicle repaired.  The homeowner gave the visitor $30.00 with the understanding that it would be repaid.Bay Village Police_FEAT

After not hearing from the visitor for several days, or seeing any activity at house, the homeowner decided he had been scammed.  He described the visitor as a W/M, 40-45 yoa, 5’10”, 175 lbs. with brown hair (receding hair line) and a beard.  He was wearing dark rimmed glasses and driving a 2005-2007 Oldsmobile Alero.  If anyone has had a similar encounter please contact BVPD at 440-871-1234.
