SHERMAN, Tex. -- Sherman Police are warning residents to be on the lookout for an Internet scam. They say mass emails are being sent to Grayson County residents asking them to send money to Africa in exchange for traveler’s checks.

Police say those checks are fraudulent.

An elderly woman has already fallen victim to the scam.

    Don't send money to people over the internet. Would you give money to a stranger? It's the same thing. People you get email's from that you have NEVER met are strangers!!! Wise up.

    This is greed! Greed by fools who send money to get rich quick schemes should NOT cause the law enforcement any time at tax payer expense! These dimwits are gambling! I do not see the cops at the casino's trying to get these same type of people's rent money returned. A fool is not worth the wasted resources it takes to protect them. Live a learn or just die broke and stupid.
