Ridgewood NJ, people of ask how do I tell if its a scam ? Here is an answer right from the FTC: Did someone say you can only pay by wiring money, putting money on a gift card, or loading money on a cash reload card? If they did, then yes: that is a scam.The video above, in a little more than a minute, presents some of the scam scenarios and what you should do about them.

Once again the Ridgewood Police Department would like to remind you to be aware of frauds. A common fraud that is currently being performed is the request for payment immediately and using gift cards, MoneyPac cards, other type of pre-paid or wire transfers or bitcoin. Please notify the Police Department if you feel you have been or are in the process of becoming victim to a fraud before payment is made.
