Deputies Warn About New E-mail Scam

Mecosta County Deputies have a warning this afternoon about an e-mail scam. They say a White Cloud man got an e-mail from a friend saying she needed money because she was mugged on vacation. Suspicious, he e-mailed her back a “security question” that only she would know the answer to and got no reply. Turns out someone hacked into her Facebook account. Deputies want to remind people to be suspicious of e-mail requests for money, especially if they ask to use MoneyGram or Western Union.
