Another scam is making its way to residents via email. The message asks for financial help and may be preying on the kindness of strangers.But being kind to strangers can cost you, says McMinnville Police Chief Bryan Denton.“I get emails like this all the time,” said Denton “They are definitely a scam. These people hope someone feels sympathetic to their plight and sends them money.”A recent email is a from a “family” that is stranded on vacation and needs help to get back home.
