GREENDOT ASSISTANCE PLAN BILKING AREA RESIDENTS

State Police Warn New Scam Hitting Potter County Area

On May 19th, Pennsylvania State Police in Coudersport received information on a scam that is currently being received by person(s) in the Potter County area. Letters are being mailed from an organization claiming to be the GREENDOT Assistance Plan. They are informing the recipients that they have been selected to receive a $10,000.00 Cash Grant.

The letter states that the first smaller payment of $925.00 is attached and the larger payment for the remainder will follow. The letter gives the recipient instructions on how to get started.

Step #1-Detach and cash or deposit attached check into your bank account.
Step #2-Follow the instructions to get me my 4.08% commission on total amount to be received.

The instructions then go on to explain how they will send you another check for the remainder amount of $9,075.00 by Airmail Express the next day! The instructions also tell the recipient to go and purchase a GREENDOT MoneyPAKS from an affiliated retailer in the area. Then it gives step by step instructions on how to fax the GREENDOT MoneyPAK ACTIVATION NUMBER TO A PROVIDED NUMBER.

The enclosed checks are written from "Key Services Corp., P10760 Memorial Dr., Fort Drum, NY 13603" and THEY ARE NOT VALID CHECKS!

Anyone having information about the reported crime is asked to contact Coudersport based State Police at 814-274-8690. Investigating officer is Corporal Murray--Crime Section.

Why do cops waste their time on stupid people who fall for stupid tricks? Everyone knows not to fall for this stuff and every week there is someone else getting ripped off. The cops need to be spending their time arresting the shoplifters and people who steal from the library.
