Kentucky State Police want to remind local citizens about a possible money scam that has been circulating.
State Police say in a recent incident, an unknown person called an individual and told them that a family member had been involved in some type of vehicle wreck and needed money wired to them.
Police say the caller then told the victim to withdraw $3,500 from their bank and go to Wal-Mart and wire it to an address in Athens Greece.
The latest incident occurred in Bowling Green, but state police want to ensure that Hopkinsville-Christian County residents and those living in surrounding counties don’t become the next victim.
KSP want to remind citizens to beware of these types of scams and to never wire money to strangers and to always double check with other family members when wiring money to a relative.
