Bay Village Police have issued a scam alert.
Here is the release:
‘EMAIL SCAMS DIRECTED AT INDIVIDUALS IN ORGANIZATIONS WITH PUBLIC EMAIL ADDRESSES. If you are part of an organization in which you have a “Title” email such as “PRESIDENT@ABC123CORP” you may be the target of a scam. Fraudsters pose as someone else in the organization and request that you purchase gift cards. They will request that you send them a picture of the numbers on the back of the card. They then purchase items online before the organization realizes that it is a scam. At that point it is too late to cancel the gift cards.’
