CrimeTracker15: Woman alerts police about Craigslist scam

Posted Wednesday June 12, 2013 --- 7:39 p.m.

A Waunona Way resident contacted the Madison Police Department last month about a scam.

A woman was selling some items on Craigslist. Among them was a wedding dress for which she was selling for $200. A "buyer" sent her a check for $1,950.

She was to deposit the check, keep $200, and be prepared to turn the $1,750 balance over to a "wedding planner," who be stopping by. That never happened. The woman knew this was some sort of fraud, and called police.
