Area residents warned of scam

Detective Tom Sollosi said a Long County woman was scammed out of $3,600 through a mail scam. The woman said she received notice from a product evaluation company that she could deposit a check if she evaluated products. The company also asked her to wire two payments totaling $3,600. The woman evaluated the products, deposited the check into her account and wired the $3,600, as instructed, but later was notified the check was no good. The wire payments were not covered and instead came from the woman's own account.
