MADISON, Wis. (WMTV)---A person tried to scam a Madison man who was offering guitar lessons on Craigslist on Tuesday night.

According to the Madison Police Department, the 21-year-old man received a text message from a woman asking for guitar lessons for her son, “Kelvin”. The “mother” sent the guitar teacher an advance check to pay for the first couple of lessons. The check was for much more than the lessons would cost. She said the additional money should be wired via Walmart to her nanny.

The man knew this was scam, and he contacted police.
