The Sheridan Police Department would once again like to warn Sheridan residents about the proliferation of Internet scams. Detective Sgt. Tom Henry tells us.

Henry says these scams can originate via e-mail, US mail, using E-bay, Craig's List, or even dating websites. He indicates a similarity among the scams.

Henry stresses that checks and money orders involved are counterfeit. He adds that if you cash one and wire the money, YOU will be the one responsible for reimbursement to the bank, regardless of the amount.

If you have any questions regarding these or other scams, contact the Sheridan Police Department immediately at (307) 672-2413.
