9/10/2020 11:29:00 AM 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.
