Scam alert

The Burrillville Police Department is currently investigating a scam where an apartment for rent is listed on an online classified website such as Craigslist. The ad lists the address of the apartment at 163 Laurel Ridge Ave. in Pascoag. Once contact is made and an online agreement is made, the seller asks the victim send funds via a money transfer app such as Zelle, or PayPal to hold the apartment before the victim has a chance to view it in person. When the victim shows up to view the apartment, they learn it is not for rent.

Police are warning residents not respond to any online ads for an apartment for rent at the above address, and never to transfer funds to an unknown source before viewing an apartment.

Anyone who has sent funds to someone regarding the above address is asked to contact the Burrillville Police Department at (401) 568-6255.
