Sandy Township, PA – A 57-year-old Dubois woman was scammed out of hundreds of dollars after getting an email that she thought was from her workplace.

The woman told Sandy Township Police that she thought her boss sent her an email requesting her to purchase $300 worth of gift cards.

She was told to take a photo of the cards after she scratched off the number on the back and send the picture to the person by email. The woman later found out the email was a scam.

If someone calls or emails you and asks for money, gift cards, or personal information, always be suspicious.

If it seems to be someone who you know, verify that the person truly is who they say they are.
