Local resident Pat Jones knew it was a scam the moment she saw a $2,985 cashier’s check in her mother’s hand.But her mother wasn’t convinced, even going so far as to endorse the check. She likely would have lost some of her hard-earned money if Jones had not interfered.“I kept telling her it wasn’t real, but she didn’t believe me,” said Jones. “I did some checking on it and found out it was probably a con and then I called the number on the letter she received.
