Area resident presented with 'block grant' scam

It seems a new scam pops up almost every week.

On Friday, Cottonwood County deputies learned of a scam that is the first of its kind, at least in this area.
A Dundee resident reported receiving a call stating she could benefit from a community development block grant. The resident was told she was to pay with $800 in Walmart gift cards. She was asked later to provide another $200.
