Gift Card Fraud

Hanover Police recently investigated a fraud involving gift cards. In this case, the victim sent large amounts of money in gift cards to an unknown person on promise of receiving a Mercedes Benz and eight million dollars in cash. The fraudster kept making up excuses for why more money was required from the victim. Hanover Police are reminding citizens that NO legitimate contest would require the winner to purchase and send gift cards to obtain prices.  If anyone has information about this fraud, they are asked to contact the Hanover Police Service or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or by submitting a secure Web Tip.
