Pascagoula Police Warn Of Bizarre Scam

Pascagoula Police want you to beware - there's a bizarre scam circulating the coast involving a complicated scheme to get your money.

Police say a man posing as an African National convinces victims to help him get to a bus or train station, and while in their cars shows them large amounts of money. Then, with the help of another suspect, the two are said to convince their victims to take part in a ritual of trust.

They say they will deposit money in the victims account to be sent to Africa later. Then, to prove they can be trusted, the victim is supposed to walk around a building with the suspects' money. They, in turn, do the same thing, but take off with the victim's money.

Investigators say if you have any information about this or similar incidents to please call the Pascagoula Police Department.
