Re: Check Scam

 

The Texarkana Arkansas Police Department would like to make citizens aware of a potential check scam that is being sent through the mail. The check comes from a company called WTG Logistics out of New Hampshire. The check is accompanied by a letter from Claims Logistics, claiming that you are a recipient of an unclaimed settlement. Contained inside the letter it then directs you to send in a processing fee to claim your money. The letter gives a phone number and an address in Ontario Canada to contact.

The Texarkana Arkansas Police Department has spoken with WTG Logistics and they advised that this is a scam that unknown individuals are using with their banking information. WTG Logistics advises that if anyone receives a check in the mail from their company it should be destroyed. The Texarkana Arkansas Police Department would like to remind everyone that they should never provide their personal information to anyone they do not know.
