Galloway Police Warn Residents of Employment Scam

Recently an individual from Galloway was a victim of a stolen property scam.  The victim contacted unknown individuals through a popular job listing website on the internet and was promised stay at home employment.  

This “employment” required the individual to receive packages at his residence containing numerous different products (electronics, sports equipment, etc).  

The suspects would then email new shipping information to the victim who would then re-send these items to other addresses some within the United States and with others being sent to addresses in foreign countries.
